COVID-19: Canadian officials provide update as hospitalizations, cases rise in 6th wave | LIVE

1 min read

Canadian health officials will be providing an update on COVID-19 on Tuesday morning as COVID-19 hospitalizations and cases are on the rise once again across Canada, according to public health data, and the reality of a sixth wave of the pandemic begins to take shape.

As of Monday, the seven-day average of daily lab-confirmed cases sits just above 9,843, a nearly 50 per cent jump from just two weeks prior.

Hospitalizations are also rising, with 4,876 people currently receiving care, up 17 per cent since last week and about 30 per cent above the number two weeks ago. Of those patients, 394 are in intensive care, a slight uptick since late March.

Although every province except Ontario and Quebec has moved from reporting COVID-19 data daily to now posting weekly updates, a majority of jurisdictions in Canada are seeing a rise compared to last month.

Canada’s chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam and her provincial counterparts have said an even more transmissible subvariant of Omicron, dubbed BA.2, is behind the current wave.
