These are the provinces in Canada where COVID-19 cases are still rising
Some provinces are doing pretty well when it comes to their COVID-19 report card, while other regions are watching their grade slip from an A+ to a D.
Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia are the provinces experiencing the biggest resurgence in daily case numbers.
Manitoba, for example, reported 16 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, marking the sixth day in a row that the province was in the double digits — and also the highest daily case numbers since the pandemic began in March.
Alberta is similarly experiencing a surge in cases compared to its numbers earlier this summer, reporting 134 new cases on Aug. 7: the largest single-day total in over two weeks.
British Columbia also continues to add to its daily case count, recording somewhere in the ballpark of 40-50 new COVID-19 cases a day — relatively the same numbers that it was recording in late April.
In happier news, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec's COVID-19 case numbers continue to trend downward overall compared to their peak daily case counts.
New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Yukon, and Newfoundland and Labrador are reporting very few or no new COVID-19 cases, although a few active cases remain in some regions.
Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, and Prince Edward Island are completely free of COVID-19.
