If the country's vaccine rollout goes as planned, 75% of adults will have received their first dose and 20% will have received their second dose by mid-summer, which could mean the gradual easing of restrictions.

Dr. Theresa Tam said this shows there is hope that public health measures can be lifted in a safe way.
