Cautious optimism is spreading worldwide that the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic may be over.
Amid fears over new variants, and a patchwork of vaccine rollouts, Eric Sorensen explains what’s keeping people hopeful about the future.
In Canada specifically, 3,091 coronavirus cases and 58 deaths were reported on Thursday, as provinces ramped up their vaccine rollouts.
The country now has 858,220 cases total and 21,865 deaths, while over 240,000 have been vaccinated — the highest weekly total in more than a month, according to Howard Njoo, Canada’s deputy chief public health officer.
More than 40 per cent of Canada’s population over 80 years old have now received their first vaccine dose and about 5.5. per cent have gotten their second dose, according to federal data.
