As Canada faces its greatest COVID-19 numbers since the start of the pandemic, the fear of possibly hitting 10,000 new cases per day by December looms heavily.

The numbers don't lie, with the country seeing well over 250,000 cases and more than 10,000 people dead, the country is surely seeing the worst of the virus.

Some Canadian health experts are done being nice about it.

Dr. Abdu Sharkawy, an infectious disease specialist, believes that the government should stop "asking nicely" and instead impose stricter health protocols.  

"At this point in time, I think we need to get our bylaw officers out," he told CTV News.

"The time for asking nicely has passed. There’s simply too much at stake. There are too many lives that have already been lost and too many more that lie in waiting."

Sharkawy said that even if we want COVID-19 to be done, it’s not quite done with us. 

Raywat Deonandan, a global health epidemiologist and associate professor at the University of Ottawa, believes that the opposition is derived from "raw selfishness," according to CBC News.

"There's an inability to think about community responsibility," Deonandan said. "But if you scale this up to a population, then that's tens of thousands of deaths — and they don't care."

Experts stress that it's not enough for Canadians to be done with COVID-19, rather it's going to take more rules and enforcement to get the country back to safer grounds.
