COVID-19 Pandemic Situation in Canada
As of August 19, provinces and territories have administered over 52 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines. The latest data indicates that 83% of people aged 12 years or older have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Also, 74% are now fully vaccinated.
Despite the situation, September 7th is still the intended start date unless the pandemic takes a turn for the worse. It is important to note that Canada is currently entering the fourth wave of COVID-19 infections.
- The highly contagious Delta Variant of Concern (VOC), accounts for the majority of recently reported cases.
- Also, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) said that most reported cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are occurring among unvaccinated people.
