We have done more success in getting people to self-isolate, says Canadian PM Justin Trudeau

The Canadian Government is prepared to mobilise nearly 24,000 troops to assist in the effort to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, even as its Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pointedly said the country was on a different “trajectory” from the spread of the disease in the United States.

Addressing his daily press conference, Trudeau said, “I think I would say we’re not necessarily on the same trajectory. We were quicker to get the screening done, and I think we have had more success in getting people to self-isolate.”

Those remarks, delivered in French and translated by the Canadian outlet Global News, came even as cases and deaths have skyrocketed in America.
