As COVID-19 continues to spread, several more contagious variants of the novel coronavirus are spreading across Canada.

There are currently four variants of concern (VOCs) that have been identified and are being tracked by provincial health authorities and the Public Health Agency of Canada: B.1.1.7, B.1.351, P.1. and B.1.617.

CTVNews.ca’s variant tracker is keeping a daily count of these VOCs, with a provincial breakdown by variant that you can see in the above tables.
