When that figure is compared to what the country reported on November 23, when Toronto and Peel went into lockdown, the difference is staggering.

The first day of lockdown saw 6,992 new cases being reported.

That means after an incubation period had passed, Canada's daily case count was down by 493.

The latest count was also down from the day before that when it was at 6,987 and December 6 when it was 6,999.

On December 7, two weeks after lockdown started in Toronto and Peel, Ontario's daily case was reported as whopping 1,925 and just a day later that number dropped by almost 300.

However, daily cases were actually up on both December 7 and December 8 compared to November 23 when 1,589 were reported.
