Another case-count record has been broken. The number of COVID-19 cases in Canada continues to climb and new data shows the country reported a record daily figure on October 25.
On Monday, backdated figures from Alberta and British Columbia confirmed that Canada had recorded its highest ever single-day jump in new infections on Sunday.
The latest figure shattered the previous daily record of 2,672 new cases in 24 hours, which was set just days earlier.
New cases in Canada on Sunday
This is the first time Canada has reported over 3,000 new positive test results in a single day.
That said, Saturday’s updated total has also now climbed to 2,932 new positive tests — another record-breaking figure.
As the entire country continues to report surges, so do individual provinces.
Conversely, there remains one Canadian region with zero cases to date.
As of October 26, Canada's total number of COVID-19 infections had reached 220,213.
