She revealed that 7,819 new positive tests were confirmed on Sunday, alongside 117 new deaths and an increase in hospitalizations and ICU figures.

In a follow-up message, the top doctor admitted that the next few months in Canada “will be difficult.”

She said the country continues on a “trajectory of strong resurgence,” acknowledging that new variants of COVID-19 are a concern to public health officials.

Despite this, Dr. Tam told Canadians to continue to follow public health guidelines, as “the way #COVID19 spreads has not changed.”

Back in December, Justin Trudeau shared a video that shows how COVID-19 continues to spread.

At the time, he urged everybody to “stop scrolling” and watch the clip, before pleading with Canadians to download the government’s COVID-19 alert app.
