Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau said in a routine speech on February 2 local time that strict regulations must be implemented in the coming weeks in view of the spread of the more infectious Variant novel coronavirus in Canada.
This is the first time that the Canadian federal government has confirmed that the Variant coronavirus will pose a greater threat to Canada.
To this end, the Canadian government is considering upgrading the current pandemic prevention measures.
Theresa Tam, the chief medical officer of the Canadian Federation, confirmed that there are 148 cases of Variant coronavirus infections that have been found in Canada so far.
Although the number of people infected with these Variant coronavirus is not large at present, the infectious power is obviously stronger.
Lawrence Loh, a health care officer at the Region of Peel, which is part of the Greater Toronto area, warned that community-based transmission of Variant COVID-19 is likely to change the pandemic situation soon.
