  • ℹ️ Description
While Canada and some other countries are moving ahead with reopening plans from the COVID-19 pandemic, others are seeing a surge as the World Health Organization reported 183,000 new cases around the world. Brazil and the U.S. are reporting the largest increase in cases. As Redmond Shannon reports, the news comes as some countries show worrying signs of a second wave.

In the U.S. where the first wave is still accelerating, some states are reporting more cases among younger people who have been congregating at bars and concerts. And there's more criticism of the president tonight who joked the U.S. should slow testing to bring the numbers down. Jennifer Johnson reports.

A third migrant worker has died from COVID-19 in Ontario. Concerns for the health and safety of these seasonal workers prompted Mexico to ban its citizens from coming to work on Canadian farms. But Ottawa was able to strike a deal with Mexico that improved conditions and allowed its migrant workers to keep coming here. Abigail Bimman has more.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that China detained Canadian citizens Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor in an obvious attempt to put political pressure on Ottawa over the case of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou. China strongly disagrees and has issued Canada a warning. Chief Political Correspondent David Akin has more.

The family of an Ontario man who was shot dead by police is demanding the officer be fired and a public inquiry be launched. 62-year-old Ejaz Choudry was suffering from Schizophrenia and may have stopped taking his medication. His death has sparked protests. Sean O'Shea has more.

As more long-term care homes are declared virus free, they're taking in new residents to fill the beds left by those who have passed away from COVID-19. But filling up those empty beds is opening up new concerns. Ross Lord explains.

Well good thing cases are down deaths are down no hospital was over run 98% recovery rate inexpensive effective treatment...the case numbers were inflated by 25%. We have been warned of the second wave since the beginning. It's obvious they are gong to create a second wave. Right in time for school.

0:11 « the greatest threat we face now is not the virus itself. »

« You couldn’t have said it better, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. The greatest threat humanity has been facing is you, communism, and the Chinese government you are helping in the darkness which is tearing the world apart with absolute hypocrisy, lies, fascism, and violence; always pushing your agenda further through all your secretive, destructive rotten arms everywhere around the globe as an ultimate goal to force your obnoxious and rampant ideology of absolute misery and poverty until total destruction of humanity has been reached, all this finding its roots in your infinitely diseased thirst to impose your totalitarian state of absolute power and control over people.

You are the most agressive form of cancer we have ever faced as a species.

Let’s never remember China has invented and voluntarily spreaded this impossibly contagious disease around the world, and you supported them with your voluntary inactivity and incompetence. »
