More than 14,000 cases are now reported in Canada this Sunday morning, including 274 deaths.
At 10:00 a.m. EDT, the main provinces still affected were Quebec (6997), Ontario (4038), British Columbia (1203) and Alberta (1181).
In his news briefing on Saturday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the arrival of millions of protective masks from China “within the next 48 hours”. He said that Canadian envoys are currently ensuring that “the supply chain continues to work in China and that Canada has rented a warehouse there to store the equipment it has managed to get its hands on.
On the issue of N95 masks and the U.S. president’s intention to stop sending them to Canada to keep all production in the U.S., Prime Minister Trudeau says discussions are underway to address the problem.
