Sophie Grégoire Trudeau given all clear from health officials after contracting coronavirus

Trudeau said his wife has taken their three children to the prime minister's summer residence in Harrington Lake in Quebec.

Sophie Gregoire Trudeau issued a thank you to Canadians for their support Saturday in a Facebook video announcing she had been given the "all-clear" from both her doctor and Ottawa Public Health.

Ms Gregoire-Trudeau had tested positive for Covid-19 on 12 March after returning from Britain, with her husband subsequently going into self-quarantine as a precautionary measure.

Speaking to reporters outside of his home in Ottawa Sunday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canada will be receiving additional medical supplies from China "in the coming days", noting that Health Canada will evaluate the equipment. "Since he does not show any symptoms, he will not be tested", it said.

These moves are equivalent with giving $30 billion in interest-free loans to businesses, Trudeau said.

Urging people to follow protocols laid down during the global battle against Coronavirus, the First Lady of Canada said: "These are challenging times". I know it's not easy to be alone - we are all social beings, me included!

"The most important thing we can do to help people and the economy in this crisis is for the government to take strong fiscal action", Trudeau continued.

'We're going to get through this, my courageous friends and fellow Canadians, and we're going to get through it together'.

There are now over 5,000 cases in Canada, with the majority of cases in Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia. The order was effective immediately and replaced one that prohibited public events of over 50 people.

Canada has thus far reported 5,655 positive cases of coronavirus, including 60 deaths.

Meanwhile, Freeland said Friday she is holding other "urgent" discussions with U.S. officials over concerns that American border agents could deport asylum seekers on the Canada-U.S. border turned back by Canada under the new border agreement.
