How mismanaging a potential crisis unfolds in Canada.
On February 1st there was maybe 1 or 2 cases (not entirely sure so we'll say 2) of coronavirus in Canada (now known as COVID-19).
March 6, There are now 51 cases of COVID-19 in Canada; 26 in Ontario, 21 in B.C., 3 in Quebec and one in Alberta. All but one of the B.C. cases have been linked to travel to affected areas.
Interesting to note, the Canadian health website states there are only 45 cases proving once again how the government can't even keep their own public information up to date and accurate. It states that this was up to date as of March 5, today is March 6, this means that 6 cases have come forward in less than 24 hours.
But hey, it's all just a hoax or it's all completely contained right, nothing to see here.
Disturbingly, we've tested more people in Canada than the US has in their country!
CANADA "As of March 4, 2020, the National Microbiology Laboratory has confirmed 519 negative cases and 14 positive cases of COVID-19."
USA "United States: 445 concluded tests, of which 14 positive (3.1% positivity rate)"
That being said, the US will soon have the capability to test 1 Million Americans. Canada, meh!
"On March. 2, Dr. Stephen Hahn, FDA Commissioner, announced that the US will have, by the end of the week, the ability to perform 1 million tests."
The attached chart shows how no one source can provide accurate information, however, as Canada has performed more tests than the US yet does not appear on the list. Clearly lists and reports are biased to display only certain countries. Whether this is economically or politically motivated is uncertain.
