Canada’s COVID-19 case count is expected to rise rapidly in coming weeks because of the new variants of concern.
The latest projections from the Public Health Agency also indicate the rollout of vaccines cannot keep pace with the spread.
Over 7,100 cases of variants of concern have been reported across Canada, with the one first identified in the U.K., making up 90% of them.
If Canadians maintain or increase of the number of people they’re in contact with, the case count could hit 12,000-a-day.
If they reduce contact, health experts say the country will be able to hold the line at 5,000-a-day.
Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam says daily cases have gone up more than 30% over the past two weeks.
While the numbers have fallen among Canadians 80 and older, rates are highest among those 20 to 39.
Dr. Tam says infections among younger, more mobile and social age groups poses an ongoing risk for spread into high-risk populations and continuing spread in the community.
