Rising COVID-19 numbers in Canada the focus of Liberal cabinet retreat
CA, 15 Sep 2020
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is convening his cabinet ministers for two days of closed-door meetings starting Monday, as a rising number of new COVID-19 cases threatens to pull the Liberals’ attention from long-term rebuilding to surviving a second wave.
Daily case counts have fluctuated across Canada in recent weeks, with some provinces seeing more significant upticks than others. British Columbia has seen a spike in cases, months after daily case counts dropping to single digits.
Ontario, Alberta and Quebec are also seeing increases. Ontario, for example, reported 313 cases on Monday — the highest single-day increase in cases since June 7. It’s also a significant jump from the 204 cases reported a day earlier.
