Canada reported 3,664 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Friday, as well as 55 more deaths. The data brings the country’s total number of COVID-19 cases to 255,536 and its death toll to 10,436.

Friday’s data represents the country’s second-highest ever 24-hour increase in new COVID-19 cases. Canada’s record daily case increase, which was retroactively set on Thursday after Alberta released data initially held back due to a reporting error, now stands at 3,918 newly confirmed infections.

With the surging cases, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is urging Canadians to slow the spread of the virus, especially as long-term unemployment levels remain high across the country. David Akin explains.
