Trudeau says Canada is in a second COVID-19 wave
September 24, 2020
TORONTO - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Wednesday that Canada is in a second wave of COVID-19 and warned the country is on the brink of a fall season that could be much worse than the spring.
Trudeau noted that when Canada went into lockdown March 13 there were 47 new confirmed cases of COVID-19, and that Tuesday alone, Canada had well over 1,000. Many provinces slowly reopened over the summer.
"We can't change today's numbers or even tomorrow's - those were already decided by what we did, or didn't do, two weeks ago," Trudeau said in a rare nationally televised address.
