COVID-19 and Canada
As we continue our worldwide fight against COVID-19, the government of Canada – and all provincial governments - is responding to the crisis with daily addresses and updates. As you know, the situation is constantly changing, as are the statistics of those who have tragically passed, those who have tested positive as well as those who have recovered. It’s important to remember that these statistics are based on cases tested and thus, declared; it is estimated that thousands of others have experienced, or are experiencing the virus, but in a mild format and so, these individuals are not tested nor represented in this data.
COVID-19 is a serious health threat, and risks vary between and within communities. Given the increasing number of cases in Canada, the risk to Canadians is considered high, meaning that our health care system is already experiencing a significant impact; it does not mean that all Canadians will get the disease.
For more information, resources and updates on the COVID-19 virus, we recommend the Public Health Agency of Canada website.
