Coronavirus Canada Update: 35 New Cases In Manitoba, None In Southeast

Canada has two more cases of the more infectious COVID-19 strain.

Ontario health officials diagnosed a person in Ottawa with the variant, which first cropped up in the U.K. The person had recently travelled there.

British Columbia announced on Sunday that the country’s fourth case is someone who recently flew from London to Vancouver.

Meanwhile, the country’s first two cases, a couple in Durham, Ontario, have now told the province they had contact with a recent traveller from the U.K.. They first reported that they had no known contact with anyone who could have infected them.

Health officials believe the U.K. strain is still susceptible to COVID-19 vaccines and won’t make you more sick than the main virus.
