Coronaviruses, including the newest one, are named for the spikes that cover their outer surface like a crown, or corona in Latin. Using those club-shaped spikes, the virus latches on to the outer wall of a human cell, invades it and replicates, creating viruses to hijack more cells. (NIAID/NIH via AP)

OTTAWA — The latest news on COVID-19 developments in Canada (all times Eastern):


The federal Public Health Agency of Canada says it will release updated modelling today on the spread of COVID-19.

The agency’s predictions will provide a look at what the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths might be in the short-term, based on how the virus has been spreading in recent days.

Their new figures come amid rising case counts that have seen some jurisdictions already say they are officially into a second wave of the pandemic.
