Canada passes 10,000 coronavirus death milestone

Sylive Claire / October 28, 2020

 

Canada, in the midst of the second wave of coronoviruses, passed the 10,000 dead milestone on Tuesday evening, according to official figures compiled by several television channels.

 

More than 90% of the deaths were recorded in the two largest provinces of the country, Ontario and especially Quebec, epicenter of the pandemic since it broke out in Canada last March.

 

As of Tuesday evening, Canada had 10,001 deaths and 222,670 cases, according to these figures compiled by the public channels CBC / Radio-Canada and CTV.

 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau acknowledged at a press conference the fatigue that is gripping the population, with the rapid rise in new cases and the toughening of measures across the country to curb the spread of the pandemic.

 

There is none of us who wants to be here in the press conferences with masks, with explanations on (...) more cases in our schools, more restrictions that limit us, annoy us in our everyday life, he said.

 

It's not going to be easy, he warned. Christmas (...) is coming. We are probably going to several parts of the country not being able to get together with our families even if we are really careful in the weeks to come. But perhaps, he gave hope.

 

We all owe it to ourselves to do our part, ”urged Trudeau. If we really want to do it and if we do our best, we are going to be able to get through it, he concluded.
