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.
