COVID-19 NEWS

⭕ Ontario's COVID-19 science table says cases and ICU admissions will rise over the next few weeks. The table says that wastewater is showing an increase in COVID-19 cases and, combined with the dropping of public health measures, hospital admissions will rise before they fall again to the current level. [CBC]

⭕ Health Canada has approved the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 6 to 11 years. Moderna’s brand name is laughably called Spikevax. [CBC]

⭕ The Canadian-developed, plant-based COVID-19 vaccine may not be approved internationally because it is partially owned by a tobacco company. The World Health Organization has a policy against dealing with tobacco and arms companies, leaving Quebec City’s Medicago in limbo. Philip Morris is the company that owns a piece of it. Health Canada has approved the vaccine for use in Canada. [CBC]
