As provinces are cautiously reopening with some allowing outdoor dining, shopping and other limited gatherings, experts wonder if the more transmissible Delta variant of COVID-19 might jeopardize some of those big reopening plans, as cases appear to be growing across Canada.

The variant first found in India is estimated by some to be at least 60 per cent more contagious than the previous dominant strain.

Evidence from the U.K. suggests that the Delta variant spreads much more easily than other variants that have appeared in Canada so far.

In Canada, Alberta, B.C., Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario have confirmed to Global News that they are testing for cases of the Delta variant. The remaining provinces didn’t respond to Global’s request for comment by publication.

And cases seem to be increasing.

Dr. Isaac Bogoch shares his insight on top COVID-19 headlines, including a spike in the more transmissible Delta variant in Calgary and the potential impact on our return to life after the pandemic.

  1. Blablabla blablabla blablabla
    Old news the 5 waves is already here it's called the endless possibilities of variants.
    Yes fluoride is good for your teeth ask Hitler.
    I don't think that Hitler care about the prisoner's teeth.
    No donut no Jab for me.
    Now eat Grass and say baahaaaa.
    Let love guide you and not fear.

    Love Q

  2. Glad to see people on here aren't so gullible like that majority.

    These lies need to stop and so does the tyranny of this government.

    Coming up with variants evey other day is getting old.

    And HOW could the vaccine produced BEFORE said variants protect against them?
    It's NOT possible.

  3. The only VARIANT were getting is different levels of lying by the (needs to be defunded MEDIA and bought-off Medical Establishment). MAN MADE REPORT ON THAT!

  4. The maker of Astra Zeneca vaccine was quoted on this very news channel as saying it would be dangerous to mix and match. This is unbelievable the mixed messages we are getting.

  5. In Calgary, due to the kickbacks Nenshi and Jason Kenney receive to go ahead with the Calgary Stampede, they are going to ignore public health concerns about the Delta variant. In fact, there has been a local media blanklet on the Delta variant here in Calgary. The radio station, and most media outlets are not reporting the seriousness of it or ignoring it altogether. Remember now, Nenshi is on the board of directors for the Calgary Stampede, and he's pushing hard for the Stampede to go on. Both Nenshi and Kenney got significant financial kickbacks to push Calgary Stampede for July so they are lifting all of the restrictions by July 1. People of Calgary are stupid and actually believe these two crooked politicians that there is no threat. Calgary is doomed to be a massive hotspot of Delta as soon as the Stampede is over. Calgarians forget that Kenney only does things in the best interest of his pocketbook and Nenshi is on the Board of Directors of Stampede. Of course these two imbeciles want to go ahead and lift all restrictions so they can open Calgary for the Stampede

  6. There is also overwhelming data and information that these vaccines are deadly and the adverse reactions are climbing by the thousands.

  7. Pub Med Informed Consent?
    Published literature was reviewed to identify preclinical and clinical EVIDENCE that COVID-19 vaccines could worsen disease upon exposure to challenge or circulating virus.

    COVID-10 vaccines designed to elicit neutralizing antibodies may sensitive vaccine recipients to more severe disease than if they were not vaccinated.

    Vaccines for SARS, MERS and RSV have NEVER been approved.

    The data generated in the development and testing of these vaccines suggest a serious mechanistic concern; that vaccines designed empirically using the traditional approach (consisting of the unmodified or minimally modified coronavirus viral spike to elicit neutralizing antibodies) be they composed of protein, viral vector, DNA or RNA and irrespective of delivery method, may worsen COVID-19 disease via antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE).

  8. I’m still waiting for these Government medical ‘experts’ to cite their sourced data or studies done. For some reason, it’s not made available to the public. Hmmm…

    I guess we’re just suppose to take the tv’s advice at face value. 😉

  9. Of course it will and so will the next and the next and the next , my immune system has beat it already so enjoy that vaccine? I only needed a polio shot once …. Wakey wakey

  10. The government probably planned this to decrease the population, cause if I was president or prime minister I would do my job on my behalf to make sure that anyone could be protected and if this was a crisis why are they keeping themselves safe? They should make a drive through for us to get our groceries for an example, they could have in the whole process decided to be ethical and not let people come from the airport! Look at this new variant it goes to show we should just try protect ourselves maybe make everyone’s rent free for 5 months or something?! Goshhh try better solutions I got the first dose, but I pray to god people who have to access and opportunities to protest or something do it! Cause the government needs to try do better! I pray everyday because god healed me when I was a kid, I could have died but this virus is not something anyone deserves to go through god bless you all and stay safe! This is getting me depressed but helping myself is the first step to helping the world and the world needs me and everyone as much as they think it doesn’t keep praying for your family, I hope I inspired many many amazing blessed people to learn! God bless you all no weapon formed against you shall prosper! Keep spreading awareness and pray.
