Canada is dealing with another surge of coronavirus infections. In major cities such as Montreal and Toronto, the number of cases is skyrocketing. At this point, the country is now seeing more cases per million than the United States, which is a first since the pandemic began.
The vaccine distribution in Canada has been poor, which many believe is a major contributor to the rise in infection rates. Just two days ago, barely 22 percent of the population of Canada have had the first round of the vaccine. In the US, 37 percent have. As of April 14, less than 2 percent of the Canadian population is fully vaccinated.
As a result of this government incompetence, political leaders have imposed yet another lockdown with even stricter enforcement this time around. A state of emergency has been issued for a third time, and a multi-week stay-at-home order has been enacted.
In other words, things are an absolute mess in Canada.
The U.S./Canadian border has been closed for well over a year now, but it seems as though the U.S. is no longer the problem. According to a recent news article on WebMD, the U.S. CDC issued a travel advisory earlier this month, saying that “travelers should avoid all travel to Canada.”
Many Canadian oppose another lockdown. In fact, many groups, including some nurses, have protested the stay-at-home order.
