According to Canadian television (CTV), as of 15:30 Canadian Eastern Time on January 3, according to the statistics released by Canadian provinces, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Canada has exceeded 600,000, reaching 601,653.
Among them, 2,964 new confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus were added on that day in Ontario, and a total of 7,663 new confirmed cases were added in Quebec during the three-day holiday of the New Year.
The number of new cases in these two provinces alone exceeded 10,000.
However, since the COVID-19 data released in Alberta in the previous two days were estimated by Dina Sinshaw, the provincial chief medical officer, according to the proportion of test data, the specific statistics have not yet been released, so the data across Canada will be revised later that day.
However, even according to the most conservative estimates, there have been more than 600,000 cases.
Canada’s confirmed coronavirus cases increased from 300,000 to 400,000 in 18 days.
It takes 15 days to increase from 400,000 cases to 500,000 cases and from 500,000 to 600,000 cases.
