Ontario reports lowest COVID-19 daily case count in five weeks”

"My hope is that knowing vaccines are safe and effective at any point in pregnancy will encourage those who are now pregnant to take the opportunity to get vaccinated".

On Tuesday before Biden's address, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee urged the USA trade representative to continue opposing a waiver to loosen patent and intellectual property protections on coronavirus vaccines.

More than 5.5 million Ontarians have now been vaccinated, with the province saying it's on track to have administered first doses to 65 per cent of Ontarians aged 18 and over by the end of May.

The signatories to the letter were Jim Jordan, Darrell Issa, Steve Chabot, Louie Gohmert, Matt Gaetz, Mike Johnson, Tom Tiffany, Thomas Massie, Dan Bishop, Michelle Fischbach, Scott Fitzgerald and Cliff Bentz.

The Ontario government says an increase in the supply of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has allowed them to expand booking eligibility.

A group of nine Democratic senators and Bernie Sanders (an independent) had called on Mr Biden last month to support a temporary IP waiver.

"The focus of the COVID-19 vaccine program is to protect as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, addressing hot spots and reducing overall transmission".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made the announcement on Tuesday at his regular COVID-19 update, he said the doses would arrive on Canadian soil by Wednesday morning.

Moderna has announced that it would not seek to enforce any of its COVID-related patents against other vaccine makers for the rest of the pandemic and has pledged to license its COVID-19 vaccine patents.

"This danger is particularly acute considering that numerous crucial technological advances made by American businesses and institutions in the fight against COVID-19 were made on the backs of billions of dollars of investment by American companies as well as billions more in American taxpayer money", the letter says. She also said there's evidence that breast-feeding mothers would benefit from the vaccine as the antibodies transfer to the infant to provide protection. "The damage would extend beyond even the considerable value of COVID-19 vaccines and medicines, also endangering the far greater value of the jobs and economic growth promised by these IP rights and the advanced technologies they represent", the Republican Congressmen said in the letter.
