Prime Minister Justin Trudeau insists Canada will continue to “listen to science” and take expert medical advice when it comes to COVID-19.
Several cabinet ministers have confirmed the government is discussing whether to continue with the ArriveCan app and other border restrictions that are set to expire at the end of the month.
Trudeau says everyone wants the pandemic to be over.
Meantime, the number of children under the age of five getting vaccinated against COVID-19 in Ontario is even lower than the relatively small numbers many experts had expected.
Shots for the youngest age group have been available for two months, but only about six per cent of those kids have had their first dose.
The province’s chief medical officer of health, Dr. Kieran Moore, says that is lower than what he thought he would see by this point, and hes hoping in particular to increase uptake among kids with underlying conditions.
