On Friday, Canadian ministers, following by the country’s top doctors, will deliver an update on the COVID-19 situation and vaccine rollout, as Saskatchewan and Alberta face a surge in cases and a strained health-care system.
Canada’s chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam said last Friday that the country is seeing a daily average of 2,200 people hospitalized due to COVID-19 and of those, about 700 are in intensive care units. She added that based on the 7-day average, 36 deaths a day due to COVID-19 infections.
And according to Canada’s deputy chief public health officer Dr. Howard Njoo, the best way to protect children under the age of 12 who are not eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine from getting sick and staying in school is for the adults around them to receive the shots.
