Ottawa/Xinhua: There have been 124,629 cases of COVID-19 in Canada, including 9,071 deaths, said the Public Health Agency of Canada on Sunday.

It added that "89 percent of people have now recovered."

Labs across Canada have tested 5,076,734 people for COVID-19 to date. Over the past week, an average of over 48,700 people were tested daily, with 0.8 percent testing positive, it said.

Over the last several weeks, national daily case counts have ranged from 350 to 500 cases, with an average of 380 cases being reported daily during the most recent seven days.

As Canada continues to reopen economic and social spaces, the agency said, the country has seen increased COVID-19 cases in recent weeks. "But we are continually improving our capacity to manage COVID-19 based on our own experience and the experience of other countries. Together, we can limit the size and impact of these resurgences," it said.
