Around one year after Canada’s COVID-19 restrictions began, the prime minister Justin Trudeau has acknowledged the significant milestone.
Taking to Twitter, Prime Minister Trudeau admitted that it’s “hard to believe it’s March again.”
His comments come 1 year after Canada’s first COVID-19 restrictions began to come into effect, including social distancing rules, limits on gatherings & non-essential travel advisories by the end of March 2020.
“But we’re in a better place now than we were last time this month rolled around,” Justin Trudeau continued.
“Along with public health measures that are keeping us safe, we’ve got vaccines being distributed across the country, with millions more on the way,” he said.
He explained that 6.5 million more doses of the Pfizer, Moderna, & AstraZeneca vaccines are set to arrive in Canada before the month is through.
Additionally, the PM Trudeau promised that “10 of millions more” will get here between April & June, helping to meet the goal of vaccinating all consenting Canadians by September 2021.
25th January, 2021, marked the 1-year anniversary of the first COVID-19 case in Canada.
However, it wasn’t until March that Justin Trudeau began delivering daily pandemic press conferences and announcing national restrictions related to COVID-19.
