Canada will hold a day of observance to honour those lost to the COVID-19 pandemic over the past year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said at a press conference Tuesday (March 9).
That day will be Thursday, March 11, the one-year anniversary of the World Health Organization declaring COVID-19 a worldwide pandemic.
Since then, there have been 890,698 cases in Canada, including 22,276 deaths.
More to come.
