Canada in for "intense" weeks of Omicron infections, data shows

Global News in Canada Channel on Youtube shows that the country of Canada is set for several "intense" weeks of COVID-19 activity as the Omicron variant continues to drive record infections and hospitalizations, new modelling data suggested on Friday.

The projections indicate the Omicron wave could peak at 170,000 cases a day this month, though officials say the numbers are estimates of the so-called "true number of daily cases" that may be occurring due to testing restrictions limiting reported cases.

Officials also projected that new hospital admissions could peak at 2,000 a day later this month, indeed.
