According to Public Health Agency of Canada, zero daily Covid-19 deaths have been reported for the first time since March 15.

Canada's Covid-19 death toll currently remains at 9,163 as of September 11 – which is also the same number reported of the day before.

However, Canada's infection figures increased in recent days and authorities are on high alert to avoid new outbreaks of Covid.

The number of positive Covid-19 cases increased with 702 from the previous day and is currently standing at 135,626.

The spike in positive cases comes as most provinces in Canada are easing lockdown restrictions.  

Some provinces, such as British Columbia has imposed new curbs to tackle the spread of the virus.

Canada's first positive Covid-19 case was reported in Toronto on January 25, which led to both Ontario, the country's most populous province, and neighbouring Quebec to turn into the hot spots for Covid-19 infections.

Ontario and Alberta both faced outbreaks among temporary foreign workers on farms and meat-processing plants. That led to a slower reopening process in certain regions.

Canada's first death from Covid-19 was reported on March 9 at a British Columbia long-term care facility.

However, Canada's experience dealing with SARS virus – which killed 44 people in Canada, or severe acute respiratory syndrome, in 2002-2003 helped health officials to prepare for the ongoing pandemic.

When a spike in Covid-19 cases in mid-March was experienced, Canada closed all international borders to all foreign nationals and ramped up tests to isolate infected patients.
