"He basically says that they were telling governments how serious this would be back in January, but of course nobody did anything until it was too late. "
I think the Canadian governments response to this has been perfectly measured. Not as alarming to cause panic to the degree of causing danger but having people prepare for whats to come. Social distancing is being put into effect properly as people come to terms with the severity of this.
If they over reacted early and went hermit kingdom we would have had mass looting of the grocery stores and riots, along with people not believing the government.
If they did less we would be 10days out from 10's of thousands of concurrent cases like Italy with many deaths.
We are easing in to it. Also you have to consider the G7 nations are coordinating on this. They all have access to classified documents and their public health experts knew the severity of this with the china data.
the truth is every country has to get this in a controlled manner 'flatten the curve' because if a country goes hermit kingdom they gotta do it until there is a vaccine if ever, because if they open their borders to international travelers they will get seeded with the virus and long term be even worse off
