Amid a continuing second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, Canada reported 6,261 new confirmed cases in the last 24 hours, increasing the nationwide tally to 415,182.

Besides the new cases on Sunday, the country also registered 76 additional fatalities from the virus, due to which the death toll has reached 12,665.

Chief Public Health Officer Theresa Tam said that although Canada is making preparations for a Covid-19 vaccine rollout, the operation will face a range of logistical and operational challenges, and Canadians should continue to fight the coronavirus with established public health measures before and after.

“An initial supply of vaccines is expected to become available in early 2021, and although supply will be limited at the outset, Canada is well-positioned to provide access to safe and effective Covid-19 vaccines for all Canadians,” she added.
