The public health of Canada calls for redoubled efforts in the fight against COVID-19 and to reduce contacts since nothing indicates.
The positivity rate of people who have been screened in the country has been on the rise for several weeks and has reached 6.5%, according to new data and models presented on Friday.
According to the WHO, a rate above 5% means that there is not enough testing done.
