As of yesterday afternoon Canada has 77,306 COVID-19 cases, including 5,805 deaths. More than 38,828 or 50 per cent of those patients have now recovered, according to a statement released by Dr. Theresa Tam Monday.
Tam noted that Canadian labs have tested 1,319,000 people for COVID-19 to date, with five per cent testing positive. Officials are now testing an average of 26,000 to 28,000 people daily.
