lootthe only reason they think the infection rate is low is because they refuse testing for anybody who hasn't been to (short list of high risk countries)
simply not true. they are testing anyone with respiratory symptoms, people who have been in contact with a confirmed case, and those who have mild symptoms who have recently traveled internationally. testing criteria will likely lighten in the coming days.
lootno travel restrictions
International flights will only be permitted to land at a smaller number of airports.
Boats and cruise ships carrying more than 500 people will be banned from docking at Canadian ports until July.
All travellers arriving in Canada from international points are being asked to consider self-isolating for 14 days as a precaution. People arriving from Hubei, China, Iran and Italy already have been asked to self-isolate.
Enhanced screening measures at airports as well as marine, land and rail points of entry (source). likely straight up bans announced sometime today or tomorrow
lootvirtually no testing
blatant lie, there is widespread testing available across the country
obviously there will continue to be exponential growth and this likely wont be stopped globally, but as of right now the canadian government has been very diligent and reactive to the current situation. a key figure that tells a big story that you've overlooked is the # of infected per 1M people. canada currently ranks extremely low in this statistic. also canadians are big travelers especially in the winter months and we have huge chinese, iranian, and italian populations.
i think you're vastly overestimating what other countries around the world are doing to try and curb this. at the end of the day theres a solid chance this virus wont be stopped and becomes widespread. at the very least the canadian gov has guaranteed rent, food, and bills support. barely any countries have committed to this.
