The second wave of corona virus can strike the country in the fall.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced yesterday that his government is preparing for a second wave of new Corona virus that could strike the country in the fall, calling on its citizens to be careful.
"We are preparing for a second wave that may strike hard," Trudeau said, noting that the government has earmarked funds for the purchase of protective equipment and laboratory tests to "respond quickly and firmly in the event of an outbreak" of the virus again in the coming months.
"We are reopening the economy, and we will have to continue to take measures, put on masks when we cannot keep a distance of two meters, and watch out for contact with others," he added in his almost daily daily press conference since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
"If we do not want to lose all the progress we have made in recent months, we must continue to be vigilant even during this new phase of the pandemic," he added.
Trudeau stressed that there are still "hot spots" in Canada, noting the low numbers of new HIV infections, hospital admissions and deaths across the country.
Trudeau announced in mid-June that his government would launch a mobile application to track the spread of the virus.
This comes at a time when Canada's borders with the United States, the country most affected by the epidemic, will remain closed until July 21 to all unnecessary transfers.
