Dr. Theresa Tam says Canadians need to cut their contacts by a quarter to slow COVID-19 spread

New federal modelling indicates that at current rates of in-person socializing, Canada could see COVID-19 case counts increase to 8,000 per day come early December. Dr. Theresa Tam says more regions have reported increased rates of infection over the past two weeks, with 26 Indigenous communities reporting two or more active COVID-19 cases. The forecasts predict that Canada's total COVID-19 count could reach 262,000 cases and 10,400 deaths cases by Nov. 8.
