The Chief Public Health Officer said that as of October 13, there have been 182,839 cases of COVID-19 in Canada, including 9,627 deaths.

 

Nationally, there are close to 19,000 active cases across the country. Labs across Canada have tested an average of over 77,000 people daily over the past reporting week, with 2.4% testing positive.

 

While there are reporting limitations over the long weekend, based on the information available, Ontario and Quebec continue to report the majority of cases. In addition some of the smaller provinces including Saskatchewan, Manitoba and New Brunswick reported notable increases in cases.

 

“As we have said before, the virus that causes COVID-19 can spread quickly without us knowing it is present in our friend and family groups or in our communities.  People who are infected can transmit the virus before they develop symptoms or without ever developing any symptoms at all. This is why we must all continue with good personal public health practices, even in areas of the country with few identified cases of COVID-19.”

“The actions of individuals are critical in areas with higher incidence.”
