Trudeau urged to take control of the situation, as the current fall “could be much worse than spring.”
Canada has entered the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic, and the situation could worsen if isolation guidelines are not followed. This was announced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, reports Reuters.
The second wave is emerging in the country’s four major provinces, Trudeau added.
“We’re on the brink of a fall that could be much worse than the spring. We have the power to get this second wave under control. I know we can do it because we’ve already done it once before,” the prime minister said.
On the eve, the number of COVID-19 cases in Canada rose sharply: on average, 1,123 new cases were recorded daily over the past week, compared with an average daily rate of 380 cases in mid-August.
According to the latest figures from the Canadian government, the total number of infected people in the country has reached 147,753.
Recall that earlier the UN Secretary-General spoke in favour of the worldwide availability of a vaccine against coronavirus. Guterres denounces “vaccine nationalism” which is not only unfair but also self-defeating.
Also, the WHO announced a record increase in COVID-19 cases in a week. An increase in new cases of coronavirus infection is observed in almost all regions of the world, except for Africa.
