The current prime minister of Canada Justin Trudeau has been mourning since yesterday as the death of their citizens increased daily due to covid-19 pandemic.
The prime minister said this third wave is incredibly serious, that cases are rising rapidly in several places across the country, numbers are higher than they’ve ever been before and their hospitals are stretched far too thin.
Adding to that, he said here’s some of what they are doing to support the provinces and territories:
“In Ontario, we’re standing by to deploy RedCrossCanada to help with their mobile vaccination teams. This is about getting doses to people where the situation is the most serious.”
“We’ve already deployed Mobile Health Units in Ontario, providing more hospital beds and freeing up space for people who need critical care. We’ve provided the province with lab support, contact tracers, and health care equipment – like oxygen units and drugs to treat COVID-19.”
“To help slow the spread of the virus and its variants, we’re supporting COVID-19 testing through mobile labs – which allow us to reach more patients. We’re also investing in safe isolation sites across the country, so those who can’t self-isolate at home have a place to go.”
“We’ve stepped up with funding to make our schools safer, to provide workers with personal protective equipment, and to deliver vaccines across the country. To date, we’ve delivered more than 12 million doses to the provinces and territories – and millions more are on the way.”
“We’ll continue to do whatever it takes to protect your health – but we can’t beat this virus without your help. We need you to stay home. If you have to head out, make sure you wear your mask, wash your hands, keep your distance, and use the #COVIDAlert app.”
