PM will now hold the discussion over the phone with the provincial premiers. The topic of discussion would include Canada’s response to the pandemic, as per the statement reported by a New York Daily.

After returning from London, Trudeau’s wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau began to show the flu-like symptoms on Wednesday night.

Following this, health professionals will be contacting and testing the people who were recently in contact with Sophie.
