Canada’s top doctor has confirmed that Canada, right now is in the sixth wave of pandemic.
Subvariant named BA.2 is acting as a fuel to increasing the cases across the country. According to the low testing, government figures state around 20,000 active cases across the country.
The number of hospitalized covid 19 patients increased from 4,200 to 5,100 in the first week of April. Tam pointed out how to hospitalisations have started to increase, too.
She urged the Canadians to get their booster shots by stating that “Getting a booster dose doesn’t just protect you against severe illness, it also provides a level of protection against infection, which in turn helps to reduce transmission.”
Dr. Kashif Pirzada, who is an emergency physician in Toronto said, “Masks need to go back on very quickly. Otherwise, we’re going to have a lot more cases on our hands.”
