MADRID, 20 (EUROPA PRESS)

Canada has exceeded 500,000 cases of coronavirus detected in the country this Saturday due to the impact of the second wave in the North American country.

In the last month, cases have increased exponentially and in the last week states such as Ontario and Quebec, the latter this same Saturday, have broken their record of daily cases, according to the CTV television network.

The country totals 501,594 cases of coronavirus, more than half concentrated in these two states: Quebec, the most affected with 174,839, and Ontario, with 153,614.

As for the number of deaths, 14,154 have lost their lives to date due to the disease in the North American country.

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, as of Friday, there were 3,194 Canadians admitted for the effects of the disease, of which 650 were in intensive care.

This Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the country will receive 500,000 vaccines against the coronavirus next January, but that these will not arrive in time for Christmas, so he asked citizens to respect health measures to “be able to embrace” yours at parties next year.
