The latest news on COVID-19 developments in Canada (all times Eastern):

9:30 a.m

The Canadian Medical Association is calling for “extraordinary” measures to address the COVID-19 crisis unfolding in several provinces.

The CMA says it wants the federal government to consider re-prioritizing its vaccine distribution strategy to focus on urgent areas instead of distributing to provinces on a per-capita basis.

The organization also says provinces should be sharing their health-care resources with areas that are especially hard-hit, including Ontario and Quebec, where intensive care capacity is overwhelmed.

The CMA says further restrictions “must also be considered” in provinces experiencing rapid rates of COVID-19 transmission.
