Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared Wednesday that a second wave of the coronavirus is already underway in most of Canada.
“We’re on the brink of a fall that could be much worse than the spring. I know this isn’t the news that any of us wanted to hear and we can’t change today’s numbers or even tomorrow’s. Those were already decided by what we did or didn’t do two weeks ago,” said Trudeau during a rare address to the nation.
“It’s all too likely we won’t be gathering for Thanksgiving, but we still have a shot at Christmas. Together we have the power to get this second wave under control,” Trudeau said telling Canadians they have the power to flatten the pandemic curve once again.
Canada’s Thanksgiving holiday is Oct. 12.
