Christmas gatherings cancelled in UK as new lockdowns announced – daynewss.
A new, faster-spreading strain of COVID-19 is halting holiday plans in parts of Britain this weekend. The new variant was first reported earlier this week. It is common for viruses to mutate, but what is known about the virus is that it is not considered to be more deadly but is 70 percent more transmissible. In London, for example, the strain has been linked to 62 percent of new COVID-19 cases. As a result, the British city, along with East and Southeast England, will move to a new Alert Level 4 Level, forcing families to cancel Christmas plans as it means no gatherings outside their immediate homes. According to Crystal Goomansingh's report, all of the UK will soon see lockdowns in action.
Back in Canada, many hotspots are experiencing tight restrictions as the country on Saturday passed half a million COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began. According to the outcome of Friday. Ontario Premier Doug Ford holds emergency meetings for two days as infections mount in the province. But as Morgan Campbell reports, despite officials' plea for people to stay home, many are turning to their vacation needs, there is hope that a vaccine will make a difference in the fight against COVID-19. But after an outbreak of the virus for about a year, officials say there is still a lot to do.
In the United States, millions of doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are already on their way to hospitals, just one day after it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency use. The country's death toll from the virus has approached 315,000 and the doctors and nurses are in a state of complete crisis. On Saturday, Congress met in a rare session, where it discussed an aid package to help millions of Americans suffering, and the global pandemic was high on the agenda of Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Francois Philippe Champaign.
