Data across all jurisdictions was not positive today. New daily cases were the second highest since the pandemic started.
In Canada, we saw a 13.1% increase daily new cases, and 7.8% increase in total confirmed cases. The change in new daily cases is above the 5 and 10 day moving averages.
The USA reported its second largest increase in new cases of 33,323 (the largest increase was 34,272 on April 5). The change in new daily cases was 8.9%, also above 5 and 10 day moving averages.
World data showed a similar trend to the USA.
It should be noted that in the US, experts predicted that this week and next would see high rates of new cases so it will be interesting to see the data in the next few days.
