Trudeau says new agreement with Pfizer to double COVID-19 vaccine doses in coming months | LIVE

CA, 17 Apr 2021
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alongside health officials will be providing an update on the COVID-19 pandemic on Friday.

Canada set another record for new COVID-19 cases Thursday, with daily infections surging past 9,500 for the first time since the pandemic began over a year ago.

The 9,564 new cases came as some provinces surpassed or nearly matched their own daily records despite imposing harsh new restrictions in recent weeks, suggesting a losing battle with the quickening spread of the virus.

Fifty-five new deaths since Wednesday brought the national death toll to 23,500. The country has seen a total of 1,096,722 infections to date, 990,080 of whom are considered recovered.

More transmissible variants of concern are now making up a significant portion of new cases in several provinces and have also made their way into the northern territories.
