Coronavirus variants could fuel Canada's third wave

CA, 20 Feb 2021
Canadian health officials are sounding the alarm over highly transmissible new COVID-19 variants, warning the pandemic could “resurge rapidly” and lead to a third wave if public health measures are lifted further.

New national public health modelling, released Friday, acknowledges the progress Canada has made in bringing down overall infections and hospitalizations, but emphasizes the imminent threat the arrival of virus variants bring to that progress.

“With the emergence and spread of new variants of concern… unless we maintain and abide by stringent public health measures, we may not be able to avert a rapid resurgence of the epidemic in Canada,” said Theresa Tam, Canada’s top doctor, at a virtual press conference Friday.
