There are "hopeful signs" that COVID-19 in Canada is going down according to Dr. Theresa Tam.
In a statement from the country's top doctor shared on February 4, she said that national surveillance data is showing those signs of decline.
reduction in active cases in the last two weeks
Dr. Tam said that over the last two weeks, the number of active COVID-19 cases has gone down by almost 30% across Canada.
There were more than 68,400 actives cases two weeks ago and now there are 48,221.
Even though data shows that health and safety measures are working, Dr. Tam said it's "crucial" to keep strong ones in place so that Canada can continue on a downward trend.
That's because daily case counts are "still elevated."
