Canadian Federal Chief Medical Officer Theresa Tam issued a statement on the 24th local time, saying that with the surge in cases caused by the second wave of COVID-19, the number of hospitalizations is increasing.
In the past week, the number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus hospitalized for treatment averaged more than 1,010 people per day. Among them, about one-fifth of the patients entered the intensive care unit, and an average of 23 people died every day.
Tan Yongshi warned that since hospitalizations and deaths will lag behind diagnoses, although the current hospitalizations and deaths are not as large as the number of confirmed cases, people should still be highly vigilant about the epidemic.
As the second wave of COVID-19 caused fewer deaths in Canada than the first wave, people’s fear of the epidemic has declined. Coupled with the resentment caused by long-term restrictions on social activities.
and governments at all levels hope to restore the economy as soon as possible, the effectiveness of Canada’s prevention and control of the second wave of the epidemic has been poor.
As of 18:30 on the 24th Canadian Eastern Time, according to data released by the Canadian government, Canada had 2227 new confirmed cases that day, a total of 213,959 confirmed cases, and a total of 9,922 deaths.
