Mod Update: On pandemic denialism

Since the beginning of the SARS CoV2 pandemic, Vancouver Hack Space members have been working directly with ER doctors to locally produce PPE during shortages. We know from first hand experience that this pandemic is real; it is no hoax or conspiracy.

We have had friends and family who have become sick and/or died from this illness.

People are dying because a minority of people refuse to put the needs of the community above their own selfishness during this crisis. This is the ultimate in Unexcellent Behaviour.

If you have “fake pandemic conspiracy” musings that you’d like to share here, don’t. We will not be a platform for misinformation during this ongoing public health crisis.

We are drawing a line in the sand. VHS is on Team Science and Public Health.
