Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the government is creating a one billion dollar COVID-19 response fund.

He says he wants all premiers and Canadians to know that the government will make sure they have everything they need to keep everyone safe.

Trudeau says the government is also waiving the current one-week waiting period for employment insurance.

He says ``we get it and we're on it.''

Trudeau says today's announcement is significant, but that the government is prepared to do more if need be.
