In an unusual television intervention, the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin trudeau, said on Wednesday that Canada is at a “crossroads” with the rapid increase in the number of COVID-19 cases and warned the population that they will not be able to celebrate the Thanksgiving Day with their families as is traditional.

Trudeau asked the main television networks in the country relay your statement in which he assured that the evolution of the pandemic in the fall that is about to start in Canada may be worse than in the first wave of the disease, during the spring.

“I know that nobody wants to hear this news. And we can’t change today’s numbers or tomorrow’s. But what we can change is where we will be in October and winter, “said a grim Trudeau.

The Canadian prime minister added that, although circumstances will not allow Canadians to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families due to restrictions imposed in most of the country to prevent the spread of the disease, “we still have a chance” to celebrate the holidays.

The Thanksgiving Day holiday is celebrated in Canada on the second Monday in October, which this year corresponds to the 12th.

Trudeau’s 15-minute address comes at a time when Canada is recording a daily average of around 1,100 new COVID-19 cases, triple the number a month ago and the highest number since spring.

The vast majority of new cases are concentrated among young people in the most populous provinces of the country: Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.

Canada’s medical director, Dr. Theresa Tam, also warned today that the country is at a “crossroads” in the course of the pandemic.

“Unless public and individual health measures are strengthened, and we work together to slow the spread of the virus, the situation is on track for great growth to occur in several provinces,” Tam warned.

In the speech from the throne that marks the reopening of the Canadian Parliament after more than a month of hiatus, the Trudeau government promised to help the provincial authorities so they can respond to the growing demand for COVID-19 testing.

In recent days thousands of people can be seen on the streets around Toronto hospitals waiting, sometimes up to eight hours, for COVID-19 testing.
