Canada handled the coronavirus outbreak better than US: Trudeau

Canada handled the coronavirus outbreak better than US: Trudeau | News | Al  Jazeera

Canada handled the novel coronavirus outbreak better than many of its allies, including the United States, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday, in a rare public comment on the faltering US effort.

Canada – with a population one-tenth the size of the US – has so far recorded 8,711 deaths and 106,167 positive cases and Trudeau said the situation was stabilising, although some hot spots remained.

In contrast, the US has recorded more than three million cases and 131,336 deaths, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University. Authorities have reported alarming upswings of daily caseloads in roughly two dozen states over the past two weeks.

“We were able to control the virus better than many of our allies, particularly including our neighbour,” Trudeau told a briefing, saying Canada’s success would help efforts to restart the economy.
