The Government of Canada has advised the public to refrain from unnecessarily urgent overseas travel in response to the spread of the Omicron mutant of the new coronavirus. Although each state is accelerating vaccination, some states have relaxed their behavioral restrictions in consideration of citizens’ corona fatigue.
The seven-day average of new corona infections across Canada was the highest since October 1. Hospitals in Japan are busy with the work that was postponed at the peak of infection, and medical staff are very tired, so even if the number of infected people increases again, it will be difficult to deal with it.
“It’s not time to travel,” Health Minister Duclos emphasized at a press conference. It is clear that there is a community-acquired infection of Omicron in the country.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged the public to follow public health recommendations and called for prudent action and child vaccination during the holiday season.
The most populous province of Ontario will begin boosting vaccinations over the age of 18 this week. The interval between the second and third vaccinations will be reduced from 6 months to 3 months.
The state has also introduced capacity limits for indoor events such as sports and concerts. The return of state government officials to the office will also be suspended.
Meanwhile, Alberta has relaxed restrictions on private gatherings because of corona fatigue.
In October, Canada had just lifted its recommendation to stop unnecessary and unurgent travel since March 2020, given the progress of vaccination.
