The money will be used primarily to set up new digital platforms and applications to give people "strategies to manage stress or support from a procurement professional," Trudeau said.

Another objective of the scheme is to improve online virtual care to help stop the spread of the virus, which has infected more than 60,000 people and resulted in 3,795 deaths in the country.

"If we can use apps to order dinner and videochats to stay in touch with family, we can use new technology to keep each other healthy," he added.
