Governments across Canada have begun implementing longer-term plans to fight the spread of COVID-19.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the feds are ramping up efforts to manufacture and distribute key medical supplies, saying the government is bracing for a worst-case scenario.
Ottawa is also allocating $2 billion to buy protective equipment for health-care workers across the country.
Meanwhile, two provinces are settling in for a longer period of physical distancing by announcing that schools will remain closed for at least a month longer than originally planned.
The Manitoba government says schools are closed indefinitely, while Ontario is extending its current closure until at least May.
COVID-19 continues to spread across the country, with health authorities now reporting more than 7,700 total cases.
