Over 83 percent Canadians are already vaccinated with at least one dose, and the provinces are looking for different methods to convince those hesitant to vaccinate. Quebec will soon ban unvaccinated people from entering alcohol stores.

People wishing to shop in Quebec’s alcohol stores and stores with Canadian legal marijuana will have to show a vaccination certificate at the entrance from January 18, said Minister of Health Christian Dubé on Thursday.

“If the unvaccinated people are not happy about it, there is a very simple solution available – go, get vaccinated, it costs nothing (…) If you do not want to get vaccinated, stay at home” – added Dubé, pointing to the increasingly difficult situation healthcare services and the growing number of hospitalizations, and the fact that almost 20,000 people suffer from COVID-19. health workers do not come to work.

As of New Year’s Eve, one of the restrictions reintroduced in Quebec is the curfew between 10pm and 5am.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke on Wednesday of growing frustration among Canadians. “People can see cancer treatments being suspended, surgery being scheduled because people who choose not to vaccinate are lying on hospital beds: and people are frustrated. When they see that we have lockdowns and severe restrictions again due to the risks of unvaccinated people, people start to get angry, ”said Trudeau. Referring to a recent statement by French President Emmanuel Macron, who, using the sharp word “emmerder”, said in an interview with “Le Parisien” that he wanted to make life difficult for anti-vaccines, Trudeau said that it was still not too late to “do what must be done.” .

A recording of the plane on which a group of participants in the Quebec reality show flew from Montreal to Cancun on December 30 appeared on social media. The film shows people mostly without masks, drinking alcohol, smoking and joking. Trudeau called this behavior “completely irresponsible,” pointing out that passengers were putting their health at risk, including pilots. He added that the Ministry of Transport would conduct an investigation. Since then, at least one charter participant has been tested for COVID-19. Sunwing refused to accept passengers on the return flight previously scheduled for Wednesday. Transat and Air Canada have also refused to provide aircraft. At least 19 people Air Canada refused to board its Cancun flights on Wednesday and Thursday.

The participants of the group are threatened with penalties of up to 5,000. CAD, and if the findings show that the health and life of others is at risk, additional fines and imprisonment.

Among Canadians over the age of 5, over 87.5 percent. has already received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to data on the website, which collects data on various official sources of vaccination in Canada. However, over the past seven days, the average number of new cases in Canada was over 41.7 thousand. cases per day, the current wave began to rise sharply in mid-December, according to data presented on the Global News website.

Laboratories are not keeping up with the development of PCR test results, and Canadians have limited access to rapid tests that support tests in health care facilities. In the largest province of Ontario, where the tightening is in force again on Wednesday, free antigen test points will be closed in mid-January. They will only be handed over to people working in the most vulnerable places. Ontario chief physician Dr. Kieran Moore said Thursday that “testing is a luxury.”

Federal Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said Wednesday that 140 million additional rapid tests will soon be delivered to the province, which means that every Canadian will receive at least one test a week. However, it is not known how they will be delivered, as the federal government is responsible for the wholesale purchase of the tests, but distribution is organized by territories and provinces.

Problems with ensuring the appropriate number of employees concern not only the health service. In Winnipeg, Manitoba, the chief of the local police has declared an emergency over 10% of the population. policemen and police staff. In Prince Rupert, British Columbia, half of the firefighters are isolated.

And the largest Canadian city, Toronto, of which 98.6 percent. workers are fully vaccinated, and unjustifiably reluctant to vaccinations have just been fired, as announced. 461 people have to look for a new job.
