Canada records 41,210 new Covid-19 cases

In terms of Covid cases, Canada is going through tough times. Driven by the Omicron variant, Canada was at 41,210 new cases reported on Friday evening, an all-time high for daily cases since February 2020 when the pandemic hit the country.

Xinhua news agency reported citing CTV news that the latest cases elevated the country’s cumulative caseload to 2,183,527, with 30,319 deaths, Xinhua news agency reported citing CTV news.

Over the past few weeks, the country’s daily case count has been on the rise due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant.

Ontario, which is the most populous province of Canada reported a record-high number of 16,713 new Covid cases on Friday, while another province, Quebec, reported a record-breaking figure of 16,461 cases.

Across Canada, most provinces have deferred the full return to classrooms in January to allow public health experts to assess the impact of the Omicron variant and prevent a potential surge in cases fuelled by school children.

Quebec reinstated the curfew starting from December 31 since the province battles a sharp spike rise of Covid infections.

People who are found to violate the curfew are subject to penalties ranging from 1,000 Canadian dollars ($790 US) to 6,000 Canadian dollars ($4,740 US).

Places of worship in the province are closed, except for funerals. Restaurant dining rooms are also closed, and stores are shut on Sundays for the next three weeks, except for gas stations and pharmacies.
