Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam says deaths from COVID-19 will continue to rise even as the number of cases overall in Canada may go down.
Dr. Tam says that’s because of outbreaks in long-term care facilities.
She says close to half of the deaths being tracked are linked to long-term care facilities.
Dr. Tam says all jurisdictions are trying to deal with those outbreaks but as people learn more about how to respond, new measures are being put in place.
