Global National: April 16, 2022 | Worries over COVID-19 case surge in wake of holiday weekend

It’s the first major holiday weekend with few COVID-19 restrictions in place across the country, but with the virus’ sixth wave spreading across Canada and so many people on the move, there’s concerns of a rise in cases and hospitalizations. As Mike Drolet reports, experts are urging people remain vigilant as they gather.

Now to Ukraine, where officials are urging residents of Kyiv not to return home as the capital comes under renewed fire from Russia. Meanwhile, in Mariupol, Russia says it has taken control of a steel plant, one of the last remaining outposts of Ukraine’s forces in that city. Reggie Cecchini reports on the latest Russian offensive targeting major cities across the country.

Canada pledged to send up to 150 military troops to Poland in an effort to ramp up humanitarian support for Ukrainians fleeing the war. Some 100 Armed Forces members are already on their way.
