Rising COVID-19 reproduction value causes concern in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan

CA, 24 Feb 2021
While COVID-19 cases are declining in Canada, the reproduction rate (the R value) of the novel coronavirus is rising in the western provinces.

Heather Yourex-West explains why.

Canada added another 2,752 cases of the novel coronavirus Tuesday as federal officials promised the country’s vaccination program is set to ramp up again this week. The new infections brought the national count to 852,274 cases since the pandemic began last spring. Of those, at least 799,835 patients have recovered to date.

Another 39 people have died of complications from COVID-19 over the past 24 hours, pushing the death toll to 21,762.
