Total cases in Canada
If a similar number of people test positive for the illness on November 25, it's possible Canada will report 350,000 total cases before Friday.
This comes as multiple provinces continue to report record-high numbers of positive tests.
Additionally, regions that were previously less impacted by COVID-19 are now recording more and more cases.
Rising figures have even led to the breakdown of the Atlantic travel bubble.
Addressing the rising figures on Monday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged Canadians in badly-affected areas to avoid travel and stay at home whenever possible.
Discussing the holidays just days earlier, Trudeau said that a normal Christmas would be “out of the question” this year.
