Coronavirus Canada Updates: ‘Resurgence’ in COVID-19 cases a concern for federal officials

Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s chief public health officer, stressed that the “resurgence” of COVID-19 cases impacting many parts of the country is “concerning” and should be “top of mind” as safer activities are planned for the fall and winter season.

She said that with the start of the influenza season, getting the flu shot is critically important because “having both illnesses close together in time or at the same time could put you at higher risk for severe illness.”

Dr. Tam added that depending on the epidemiology in different locations, the level of viral transmission risk changes and that’s why listening to local health authorities should be everyone’s first step.
