Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to announce on Friday new measures aimed at further restricting international travel as more infectious variants of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 spread around the globe.
Trudeau has urged Canadians for weeks not to take any non-essential trips outside the country.
The briefing also comes as the Prime Minister’s Office insisted the country will get the promised four million doses of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine by the end of March.
It also comes after a chaotic morning of questions on Thursday prompted by planning data sent by the federal government to provinces, who raised the alarm at the numbers showing they could receive only 3.5 million doses rather than four million.
But officials insisted those numbers are only “minimums” and come amid a push by Pfizer to get Health Canada to approve squeezing an extra dose out of each vial of vaccine.
