Coronavirus Canada Updates Ontario Premier Doug Ford shares latest COVID update

The government says long-term care residents and staff who have been inoculated already will wait up to an extra week before a second dose is administered.

The province says that's due to a production slowdown at the pharmaceutical company.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford will make an announcement in York Region on Monday amid a rising number of COVID-19 cases in the province.

Prince Edward Island has 10 active reported COVID-19 infections.

The province added 2,430 more recoveries, for a total of 210,364.

Where are the new COVID-19 cases?

As of today, 10,436 doses of vaccine have been administered in New Brunswick and 7,339 people have received two doses.

P.E.I. has reported 110 cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic.

Forty-six deaths related to COVID-19 occurred in the previous day.

Dr. Brent Roussin, the province's chief public health officer, says case numbers have been dropping, but Manitoba is not out of the woods yet.

To counter reduced hospital capacity, which is forcing the province to transport COVID-19 patients from Toronto hospitals to places such as Kingston and Niagara, Elliott said the province is looking to utilize existing underutilized spaces at hospitals to additional care beds.

There were 46 more deaths linked to the virus in Ontario.

Just over 40,300 tests completed.

"For your reference, over the past several days Toronto has reported 815, 1035 and 903 cases", the Ministry of Health said in an email.
