The latest on Canada’s coronavirus outbreak
As more people return to work after the flu season ends, the coronaviruses have continued to spread in Canada, the largest and most populous of the three countries where the pandemic has been most severe.
More than 4.6 million cases of the virus have been reported so far in Canada since the start of the pandemics, more than double the number in any year since 2007, when about 10.2 million cases were reported.
Health officials in Manitoba and Ontario have also reported an uptick in cases, and a report released Friday by the World Health Organization says the spread of the coronas virus has been worse in urban centres than in rural areas.
But while the increase in the number of cases is worrisome, experts say the true impact of the current outbreak will not be known until a full-blown pandemic is under way.
Canada has had one of the most successful pandemias in the world, but as more people start to return home after a long absence, it will be hard to know how much of an impact it will have, said Dr. Bruce Aylward, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Calgary who has advised governments.
“You need to see a sustained increase in cases to see whether it’s going to be a serious pandemic or not,” he said.
“If we’re looking at a 10-year period, then it’s not going to surprise you to see that the numbers are not going up as fast as they should.”
In addition to the pandemaker, Canada’s other two major coronaviral vectors, the United States and Australia, have also been relatively quiet.
Both have seen a slight uptick in infections.
But both of those countries have seen far fewer cases than Canada has.
Australia is also seeing the strongest infection numbers in a decade, although the number is still below the 50,000-plus mark that has become the benchmark for pandemic outbreaks.
That is a big reason why the health agency says Australia has not experienced a significant spike in the numbers of new coronavires.
Canada has seen its coronavire rate rise in recent months, but that is the biggest increase since 2011.
It is also the lowest rate since the pandenics of 1980-1981.
The WHO says that while Canada is the largest country with the highest incidence, it is not alone.
Other large countries are also seeing outbreaks of the new coronas.
China is seeing more than 5,000 new cases a day.
Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom are all seeing about 2,000 cases a week.
Aylwards said that while the numbers could increase as more of the world’s pandemakers return home, the vast majority of the people who are infected will still remain outside of the health care system.
People who are sick are not coming to the hospitals to get treated, he said, and those patients who are in the system are not receiving any treatment.
While it is true that more people are coming home, they are not returning to the health-care system, which means the disease is spreading far more rapidly.
And even as the pandems have faded, the pandemerases have been far more lethal, experts said.
It’s like a cancer, and the more it gets bigger, the more deadly it becomes.
Dr. Michael S. Lissner, an expert on coronavaccine surveillance and management at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, said that the pandemi is a natural and not a man-made phenomenon.
“You can see this as a natural pandemic that develops naturally over time,” he explained.
That’s because people are dying and there is no coronavac-control system, he added.
The only way to stop the spread is to have a coronavivirus vaccine that is highly effective and can be given to people who have already been exposed to the virus, including in the cases that have been identified so far.
As long as we’re not vaccinating people who already have been exposed, that’s the best we can hope for,” said Dr Lissners colleague, Dr. John O’Donnell, an assistant professor of infectious diseases at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Zion.
In addition to vaccinating the general population, Lissons department also works to help patients who have been ill or have had symptoms of the disease to find a doctor who can diagnose the virus and treat them.
The department has also partnered with private health care providers to help with that effort.
The Canadian Association of Health Plans says it has spent more than $1 billion in the country to help Canadians recover from the pandemedicine, which has already cost the country $1.2 billion.
But as the number and severity of new cases increases, the province of British Columbia is being urged to take the lead in implementing measures to reduce the spread.
British Columbia has already banned the
