COVID USA/ Canada

A simplistic example on how 2 neighbours are fighting the same COVID-19 enemy with significantly differing results.

Someone needs to get serious and get act together as well as working together...just like when they put the first man/person on the moon in July 1969.


Niagara Falls tour boats highlight US and Canada's stark Covid-19 divide.

Niagara Falls


His company’s boats can carry up to 700 people, but Ontario’s strict social distancing rules have only permitted them to carry six passengers at a time.
In contrast, the US-owned Maid of the Mist boats – which can normally hold around 500 people – are operating at 50% capacity.

The US side of the falls lies within New York state, an area with a population of 19.5 million, and which has seen 414,000 Covid-19 cases and 32,000 deaths.
On the Canadian side, Ontario – with a population of nearly 15 million – has seen 38,000 coronavirus cases and 2,755 deaths.
The disparity is a consequence of many factors, including universal healthcare, early travel bans and quarantine rules, mask wearing and physical distancing measures.
