The current COVID-19 crisis remains a burden with an even more considerable risk to Canadians with new submerged COVID-19 variants. Variants of concern include mutations that seem to make the virus more infectious, allowing it to spread more quickly. Variants may also affect the severity of the disease, making it more lethal. There's evidence that some variants may impact on certain drugs and vaccines to protect against the virus. However, more research is needed to confirm these findings. The variants don't currently affect the performance of COVID-19-authorized tests, including rapid antigen tests.

The severity of Covid continues to be problematic. Many cities in Canada are facing unprecedented outcomes from the virus. Alberta has surpassed a grim milestone reporting more than 5,000 deaths related to COVID-19. Recent Provincial data shows 5,011 deaths related to the illness, an increase of 28 from last week's update. Alberta has reported the third most COVID deaths across Canada, behind Quebec, with 16,998 COVID-19 deaths, and Ontario, with 14,690 COVID-19 deaths. (Source: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/alberta-surpasses-5-000-total-covid-19-deaths-1.6630762)

"With the number of people testing positive in our testing data compared to last year and the current spike in Covid cases due to new variants, the Company foresees Covid to be a remaining issue for Canadians. We are happy to help our clients to have a safe work environment," said Andrew Ryu, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Company.
