Trudeau warns Canada’s hospitals could be swamped from massive spike in COVID-19 cases

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Friday that Canada’s hospital system could be overwhelmed as modelling showed new COVID-19 cases were set to more than quadruple by year end from current levels, and he implored Canadians to stay home as much as possible.

A second wave of the novel coronavirus is ripping across the country, forcing several of the 10 provinces to reimpose restrictions on movement and businesses. Cases continue to spike and authorities complain some people are being more careless about taking precautions.
