New travel restrictions could be on the way in Canada

The Canadian federal government is thinking about stricter travel restrictions to curb the spread of new coronavirus Covid-19 variants inside Canada.

As the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic has progressed, so too have public health recommendations aimed at stopping it.

Variants of the virus are one of the more recent COVID-19 challenges.

The variant first discovered in the U.K. (known as B.1.1.7) is still being carefully studied.

Researchers believe it is up to 70 per cent more contagious than other variants. A recent, separate study has suggested that it’s also possibly more lethal, though experts aren’t as confident in that data.

The virus variant from the U.K. is more transmissible, which could pose a problem for Canada if it becomes more established in Canada.
