Canada’s Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam said today, “A key concern this past week has been the continuing increase in daily case counts. Although we are well below the almost 1,800 cases reported daily at the peak of the initial wave in early May, we have been seeing an increasing trend in this disease activity indicator.”
