This closure has been in place since March 21 and the latest extension means we'll be going into our eighth month with only essential travel across land borders with the U.S.

Federal modelling data released Friday suggests the country could see 60,000 new infections a day by the end of the year if Canadians increase their contact with people outside their household.

If socialization increases, the projections indicate that as 2020 draws to a close, Canada could see twelvefold increase from the current level of around 5,000 cases per day.

The modelling predicts that at current rates of contact, Canada is careening towards a surge of more than 20,000 cases per day by the end of December.

Trudeau says the funding will be sent to areas that are seeing concerning situations with rising COVID-19 cases.

The average daily case count in near 4,800 and modelling shows there is rapid growth in the six provinces outside the Atlantic bubble. Canada has recorded a total of 315,751 cases and 11,265 deaths so far.

Still, Tam says that amounts to less than one per cent of the population that has tested positive, meaning the vast majority of Canadians are still susceptible to infection.
