As of Sunday, May 24, there are 84,081 COVID-19 cases, including 6,380 deaths. More than 42,980 or 52 percent of cases are now recovered. Labs across Canada have tested 1,454,000 people for COVID-19 to date, with about 5 percent of these testing positive. Approximately 28,000 people are being tested daily. These numbers represent what has been reported to the Canadian government at this moment and changing quickly.
Provinces and territories across the country are cautiously reopening, and they’ve been able to do so because of the sacrifices Canadians have made. By staying home as much as possible, and physically distancing from one another when out, we’ve slowed down the spread of the virus.
Essential workers have made sure that the health care system has been able to cope, grocery store shelves are stocked, and communities have the supplies they need. We are all indebted to their commitment to making sure the most crucial parts of our society continue to service those that need it.
Canadians have also come together to support each other through the COVID-19 crisis. Every province and territory is continuing their efforts on preparedness, including stepping up contact tracing. Research and innovative continues on the development of medical countermeasures, including therapies and vaccines.
This is all to say that while the COVID-19 pandemic has presented us with challenges that will continue for the foreseeable future, it has also reminded us of our resiliency as a community, and our capacity to achieve what needs to be done.
