The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) will provide an update on COVID-19 and address other health concerns on Friday.
Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos and other Government of Canada officials will hold a news conference at 9 a.m. ET.
The update comes at a time when Canada is struggling with three separate surges in viruses.
Cases of COVID-19, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and an early onset of the flu season have posed a significant challenge for kids’ hospitals across Canada, which have been swamped with children suffering from respiratory illnesses.
