Canadians can save Christmas if COVID-19 contained now, Trudeau says

Canadians can save Christmas if COVID-19 contained now, Trudeau says”

Trudeau said premiers told him about the challenges they're facing during a conference call Thursday evening.

"So our best protection for ourselves, our family, and our community is to consistently maintain public health practices", Canada Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam said.

"If we continue on the current pace, it is estimated that there will be over 10,000 cases daily by early December", she said.

During a press conference on November 13, Trudeau said that a lot of Canadians are looking at the holidays and are hoping that it'll be a time where we can get together again.

In Canada, new cases averaged 4,300 per day during the past week, and deaths averaged 55 per day.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau continued to prod premiers towards more stringent measures to rein in the precipitous rise in COVID-19 cases, warning that his government doesn't have "infinite resources" to stem the regional spread of the virus.

"Unfortunately, the virus will take any and every opportunity to spread".

"If we have limited resources, we may at some point have to choose between helping one region or another", Trudeau said in French. "It's in these more relaxed settings, such as family get-togethers, birthday parties, holiday celebrations and recreational activities that it is easier to forget and let our guard down on necessary precautions". "The strength of the economy should not come at the expense of Canadians' lives".

Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan all saw new highs in COVID-19 hospitalizations this week, while Ontario reported a record-breaking three-day streak of more than 1,500 new cases per day.
