Ontario Premier Doug Ford, alongside federal ministers, is expected to make an announcement Wednesday regarding an influenza vaccine manufacturing facility in Canada — part of the ongoing effort to ramp up domestic vaccine production.
He will be joined by Minister of Economic Development Vic Fedeli, Canada’s Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry François-Philippe Champagne, federal Health Minister Patty Hajdu and Toronto Mayor John Tory.
The premier on Tuesday warned people not to make big plans for Easter amid a concerning rise in cases and hospitalizations due to COVID-19, saying he is considering restrictions, including a lockdown.
The province reported 2,336 new cases and 14 deaths on Tuesday, with 1,090 people hospitalized.
