  • COVID-19 modelling shows pandemic resurgence in Canada getting worse

According to Procurement Minister Anita Anand, only half of Pfizer's promised vaccine doses would arrive in the next month because of the delay. The data show more outbreaks in long-term care homes and retirement residences now than during the first wave.

Anyone else receiving the Pfizer vaccine were initially supposed to get a econd dose after 21 days, but will now see that timetable extended to a maximum of 42 days.

Quebec Health Minister Christian Dube said Friday the reduced shipments mean that 86,775 of the 176,475 doses of the vaccine expected by February 8 won't be delivered on schedule.

Health officials are establishing a new distribution plan, but the Quebec Health Department said the strategy to immunize as many people as possible within priority groups will be maintained.

The province says 1,632 COVID-19 patients are now in hospital, with 397 in intensive care. Modeling released on Thursday indicated Canada could see 10,000 daily cases by the end of January if current infection rates continue.

"If we ease measures too soon the epidemic will resurge even more strongly", Tam said in a press conference Friday.

Seniors continue to represent the highest percentage of COVID-19 deaths, though to date 70 deaths have been reported in adults 20 to 39 years of age.

The province's total number of cases came to 234,364 and the total number of fatalities rose to 5,340 while the number of recovered patients was 200,406.

The province has now reported 240,970 confirmed infections and 9,005 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic.

New national modelling released on Friday shows that Canada is on track to see up to 796,630 total COVID-19 cases and 19,630 deaths by January 24. Nova Scotia, by contrast, reported just four.
