Carried by the outbreaks on farms in Ontario, the pandemic COVID-19 has experienced a resurgence, Monday, with more than 300 new patients identified to the country in the past 24 hours.
By mid-day, Canada had 331 new hiv-infected patients, bringing the total to 103 820 laboratory-confirmed cases since the beginning of the pandemic. In addition, 14 additional deaths were identified, for a total of 8566 Canadians who have lost their fight against the disease.
This rebound comes at a time when the health federal public warned on Monday against a possible second wave of the COVID-19 as early as mid-July, while accelerating the déconfinement across Canada.
Quebec, which has resumed publication of its balance sheet weekly, reported that 72 new cases and seven deaths that have occurred in the last 24 hours. However, the balance sheet of la Belle Province has increased from 331 patients and 37 deaths when accounting for the four days during which the government ceased to publish its data.
Worst increase since mid-June
On the Ontario side, the pandemic has continued to spread among the farm workers foreigners working on the farms of the south-west of the province. About two-thirds of the 257 new cases announced Monday have been identified in the Windsor-Essex region, where the majority of farms are struggling with outbreaks of coronavirus.
Moreover, in the case of a salon, nail care, Kingston, Ontario, recalls that the déconfinement comes with risks of revival of the pandemic. The local authorities have announced on Monday morning that there are now at least 27 cases of COVID-19 related to employees, customers, and relatives of the Binh’s Nail Salon.
Anxious about the possibility of a second wave, the mayors of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area have demanded that the province requires the wearing of mask in public places, shops and public transport links the major cities of the province.
“We are at a critical stage of our fight against the COVID-19. We must do all that we can to avoid new outbreaks of the virus in our communities,” pleaded the mayors in a joint statement.
