For the second time this week, Canada has reported under 1,000 new COVID-19 cases.

Health officials on Monday confirmed 805 new novel coronavirus infections, pushing the country’s total case count to 1,404,093.

Tuesday’s new daily cases marked the lowest daily increase since Sept. 15 of last year, when 793 new infections were recorded.

As of 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday, a total of 29,901,453 COVID-19 vaccines had been administered across Canada.

According to Vaccine Tracker Canada, 74.35 per cent of eligible Canadians have now received at least one dose, while 15.76 per cent have had both shots.

More than 447,000 doses were administered in Canada on Tuesday, as the country inched closer to its vaccination target.

Federal modelling done in April and May suggested that if 75 per cent of eligible Canadians — those 12 years old and above — had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 20 per cent had two, provinces could safely begin easing restrictions on public movement without overwhelming hospitals again.
