To date 5,076,734 people have been tested for COVID-19 in labs across Canada. An average of over 48,700 people were tested daily, over the past week, with 0.8 percent testing positive, said PHAC.
National daily case counts over the last several weeks have ranged from 350 to 500 cases with an average of 380 cases being reported daily during the most recent seven days.
As Canada's economic and social spaces continue to reopen, the country has recorded increased COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, said the agency.
"But we are continually improving our capacity to manage COVID-19 based on our own experience and the experience of other countries. Together, we can limit the size and impact of these resurgences," it said.
