Canada now has more than 10,000 cases of COVID-19 -Experts say COVID-19 measures may be in place until June or July

The number of reported COVID-19 cases in Canada has surpassed 10,000, as the global number approaches 1 million, marking a new milestone in the growing outbreak. 

Health and government officials are fighting to slow the spread of the disease and hospitals are preparing for an expected surge in patients.

According to both federal and provincial health officials, public health measures in place to limit the spread of COVID-19 may last until the summer. 

In Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s address to Canadians on Thursday, April 2, 2020, he emphasized once again the importance of staying home for Canada to come out of the pandemic sooner. 

“We know [these measures] are going to be in place a number of more weeks, perhaps even months. But everything depends on how Canadians behave,” the Prime Minister stated in his address to Canadians. “The choices you make to stay at home, to self-isolate, not to go to six different grocery stores… these sorts of things are what will arrest the spread and the increase of this virus.” 

According to sources from the federal government and the City of Ottawa, the current measures in place for COVID-19 are expected to be in place until at least the month of June in a “best-case scenario”.

In his address, the Prime Minister also announced that the federal government is expecting to have clearer projections on how long it will take before Canada will be back to normal from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

He also emphasized the need and importance for a coordinated cross-Canada collaboration with all the provinces and territories in combating the pandemic. 

Today officially marks the end of nearly three weeks that many Canadians have been staying home as part of the measures put in place to help stop the spread of the virus. 

As of Thursday, April 2, 2020, there have been over 11,068 cases of COVID-19 across Canada, including 1,683 recoveries and 127 deaths.
