In total, Henry reported 1,330 total new cases of COVID-19 for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The province began receiving the Moderna vaccine later, so the 35-day interval for second doses will also end later, Dix said.

There are 400 patients in intensive care and 292 who require a ventilator.

"This is the first of many victories to come against this deadly and ruthless enemy we face", said Premier Doug Ford.

Legault said rapid tests, whose results are available in about 15 minutes, will be used in some schools and mobile testing clinics in those neighourhoods in order to contain outbreaks quickly.

Ford said some patients from overcrowded Greater Toronto Area hospitals will be transferred to Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital when it opens on February 7.

The province said Ottawa reported 41 new cases, a sharp decline from Monday's report, when 92 new cases were identified.

"I had a lovely conversation with Angela Merkle yesterday morning in which she complained to me that every day she gets it from the German media that they're not doing as well as Canada is", Trudeau said. Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott cautioned a technical glitch likely undercounted new cases in Toronto.

"We're looking everywhere we can within the entire system, particularly in the hot spot regions, to create those beds", she said.

"With fewer vaccines arriving, we have no choice but to focus on delivering second doses for those who have already been vaccinated", Shandro said in a statement. Nine residents have died of the virus at the nursing home.

Several nearby hospitals and the local public health unit are also helping to manage the home during the outbreak.

A clinic dedicated to administering COVID-19 vaccines opened in a Toronto convention centre on Monday. Health officials said this is because the elderly population has a weaker immune response, and risks should not be taken. Whether we like it or not, Canadian provinces are dependent on the Government of Canada for vaccine supply.

The premier says this is unacceptable noting smaller countries around the world are getting vaccines and a major power like Canada is being left out.

Anand says the federal government has agreements in place for five additional vaccine candidates, which will be brought to Canada once they receive regulatory approval.
