According to the statement given by the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada on April 12th, residents across Canada have been continuing to deal with stress due to the global pandemic caused by COVID-19 for almost about two years.
Through Canada’s first and only online platform called the Wellness Together Canada, residents of all ages requiring mental health and substance use support are able to access the services, which are free, confidential and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
According to the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada, the daily number of infections of COVID-19 increase, “we are tracking a range of epidemiological indicators to monitor where the disease is most active, where it is spreading and how it is impacting the health of Canadians and public health, laboratory and healthcare capacity. At the same time, the Public Health Agency of Canada is providing Canadians with regular updates on COVID-19 vaccines administered, vaccination coverage and ongoing monitoring of vaccine safety across the country. The following is the latest summary on national numbers and trends, and the actions we all need to be taking to reduce infection rates, while vaccination programs expand for the protection of all Canadians. Due to reduced reporting over the weekend, national seven-day averages have not been updated in today’s statement. These data are still being collected and analyzed. I will provide the latest numbers during my remarks tomorrow”.
