Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tests positive for Covid-19. As Canada continues to face a surge in COVID cases due to the Omicron variant, as well as rowdy protests in the capital over pandemic health restrictions, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tested positive for Covid-19.
“This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19,” tweeted Trudeau, he is fully vaccinated and boosted.
He said that he is feeling fine and will continue to work remotely while following public health protocols.
The Trudeau family has been relocated to an undisclosed location as a precaution as protests continue in Ottawa by those opposing Covid-19 health restrictions. The events began as a protest by truckers opposed to vaccine requirements and gained followers calling for an end to other Covid-19 mandates.
Canada has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world. Four out of five Canadians ar fully vaccinated, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
Trudeau warned Canadians this month to “hunker down” for winter.
