Canada faces mounting pressure for greater COVID-19 border restrictions


Global News shows that Canada is banning passenger flights from India and Pakistan for 30 days amid concerns over rising COVID-19 cases and a new virus mutation.

Transport Minister Omar Alghabra said Thursday that in the last two weeks, more than 100 international flights landing in Canada have carried at least one positive COVID-19 case on board. At least 32 of those flights were from India.

The move by the government comes as it faces mounting calls to bring in tougher restrictions at the border to limit COVID-19 variants. Abigail Bimman reports.
