Are you having flashbacks to spring? Canada's active COVID-19 cases are looking a lot like the numbers the country saw at the start of the pandemic in March and April.
As of 7 p.m. ET on September 16, Canada had 8,105 active cases of the disease. Over half of those are in Ontario and Quebec.

These numbers seem to mirror what we saw at the end of March of this year when active numbers slowly rose to the high 7,000s.
Then on April 2 of this year, the active case count jumped to 9,162. After that, Canada went on to report numbers in the tens of thousands for months until July.
While the country had been on a downward trend, COVID-19 cases are seeing an uptick recently, a trend Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam has called concerning.
