Parts of Canada continue to grapple with an upsurge of COVID-19 cases as the calendar makes its way into autumn.
As of Saturday, Sept. 26, the number of currently active coronavirus cases across the country sits at 12,011.
That's nearly three times the number of active cases reported on Aug. 26.
The large majority of those cases reside in Ontario and Quebec, with Alberta and to a lesser extent BC dealing with an uptick in new cases this month.
Here’s how total cases, deaths and recoveries from the virus break down for each province as of Sept 26:
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Canada has tested well over 5.1-million patients and received 118,540 positives and a total of 5,047,992 negatives.
The country's first positive test was received on Jan. 25, nearly two months later the country surpassed 1,000 cases.
The drastic spike in daily case counts quickly followed that, doubling to 2,000 cases in just three days before doubling again to 4,000 cases by March 26.
Before the end of April, there were 30,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Canada.
