(Original story: February 12 @ 6:59 am): The federal government is promising more details on new quarantine rules for incoming travellers today.

"While there are no active cases of COVID here, there are many cases within range of Yukon", he said. He added that two of the cases were related - meaning they were infected from the same cluster of infections at a single location.

Within days, the NIH had sent instructions to Moderna to brew up doses, and Corbett and her colleagues were setting up the key lab and animal tests that would eventually prove they were on the right track.

- All incoming travellers must provide proof of negative COVID-19 PCR tests (the kind typically taken with a deep nasal swab) done within 72 hours of boarding their aircraft. They will have to take another test at the end of their time in quarantine and will be given that test to take with them. This positive result has been reported previously.

Also during the news conference, Sidelinger thanked the state's residents for a dramatic drop in cases since an after-holiday peak in mid-January.

With low case numbers, clusters of cases can be identified more easily and new mutations to the virus can be picked up, one Government scientific adviser said. The total number of tests processed by laboratories to date is 1,578,782.

On Thursday, 5089 tests were processed. Back then, the state was averaging about 1,300 new known cases per day.

Nurettin Yiyit, chief physician of the Feriha Oz Emergency Hospital and Ilhan Varank Training and Research Hospital in Istanbul, said Turkey made a decision to give a 28-day break between the two shots as phase studies have revealed that two doses of vaccination provide better protection against coronavirus.

The Defense Department announced Friday that it has put around 3,600 service members on orders to be ready to deploy around the country to help with mass vaccination efforts.

Zimbabwe will start taking delivery of a Chinese Covid-19 vaccine next week as it seeks to avoid a third wave of the pandemic. And keeping Canadians safe from the virus is discouraging all non-essential travel and ensuring that if people do have to travel, they're doing the things that we can be certain are going to prevent the virus from spreading further in Canada, particularly given new variants.
