Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to discuss the ongoing government response to the coronavirus pandemic including the vaccine rollout strategy as the country continues to see record numbers of COVID-19 cases.
Ministers and Government of Canada officials will provide an update on the COVID-19 pandemic following Trudeau’s update.
Canada added more than 8,000 new coronavirus cases for the second day in a row on Thursday.
The country added 8,331 coronavirus cases and 210 deaths, bringing the totals to 634,648 cases total and 16,579 deaths.
Canada has received 425,000 doses of the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine as of Tuesday, but fewer than 150,000 Canadians have received shots of them. The federal government believes it will have received about 1.2 million COVID-19 vaccine doses by the end of the month.
Trudeau offered whatever support the federal government could to provinces in the vaccine rollout during a conference call with premiers Thursday.
