RE: One thing Canada's health system doesn't deal with very well - Covid

Not sure what your point is - Covid has hit every country. Statistically, it has generally been far worse in the US as a percentage of the population.

The US has roughly 10 times the population of Canada. Thus, Canada to be equal to the US should have about 1/10th the numbers.

The US has 83million Covid cases so Canada "should have" 8.3 million cases. (1/10th) but Canada has 3.75 million cases. The US has 1,020,000deaths so Canada should have 102,000 deaths but only has 39,243 deaths.

The USA has 3051 deaths per 1 million people.
Canada has 1023 deaths per 1 million people.

So while Canada has had rather crappy results - it's still about 3 times better/safer in terms of cases and deaths than living in the US.

I live in Hong Kong - where currently we were last month the worst in the world for cases per million and the highest death rates in the world - after 2 years of being near the safest - there are reasons for this spike, however.
