We update the 'Current situation' map twice weekly, on Wednesdays and Fridays at 12 noon ET. We update the 'Detailed case information' section once a week, on Fridays at 12 noon ET.

Detailed case information

The tables and figures below reflect detailed case information provided to PHAC by health authorities in the provinces and territories. The data may change retroactively as we get more information about previously reported cases.

As of August 3, 2022, noon ET, we’ve received detailed case report data on confirmed cases.

Epidemic curve

This figure is a visual display of confirmed cases associated with the monkeypox outbreak by the earliest report date (onset of illness date, or laboratory collection date, or report date).

The shaded area in Figure 2 shows a period of accumulating data. The data for this period is currently incomplete, as it takes time for people to seek health care, get tested, and receive results. It also takes time for public health authorities to gather information and report cases to us. We update the figure weekly with new information as it becomes available. These updates include new cases as well as retroactive changes to previously reported cases.

Notes

The number of confirmed cases, hospitalizations and deaths reported may differ slightly from those on the provincial and territorial websites due to a combination of data lag and differences in timing of reporting. Websites are updated as new information becomes available. This figure is based on cases for which a case report form was received by the Public Health Agency of Canada from provincial or territorial partners.
