Coronavirus: Trudeau tells Canadians to “hold on” and not gather during Christmas

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged Canadians, once again, not to gather during the holiday season and to continue holding on to curb the spread of COVID-19. He called on people to reach out to each other and gather virtually for Christmas, because “if we loosen up before time all of those sacrifices could’ve been for nothing.” His plea came as provinces like Ontario and Quebec are under lockdown amid sharp rise in cases and hospitalizations, but with some good news of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine being approved by Health Canada. Trudeau asked people to show love for each other and for their loved ones by “not showing up to give them a hug this Christmas.”
