The cases started increasing gradually from January, and most of the affected people were travelers. The number of cases amplified dramatically in March as the virus began to spread like the local transmission started from one person to another. Till now, there are over 60 thousand confirmed cases in Canada and, as it was the lockdown mode, but now according to the latest reports some provinces begin to relax lockdown restrictions slowly.
