Don, not that Canada has been successful but that IMO Canada has been more serious about trying to safeguard its citizens.

Val, who could be happy the border is closed? Certainly not me! But if it helps contain the virus, I support it.

Well, those who have posted are expecting too much too soon.

Again this is a virus, not influenza. That there will be a 2nd phase of lots of "victims" is what I hear up here.

Yes, on Friday the Atlantic Canadian Bubble will open. & will have lots of checks in place.

That it might be of short duration, looking back at the Spanish Flu of the past century, I rather expect.

Europe and NZ are more serious than USA.

I was speaking with a relative in upstate NY about this the other day.

Take the number of cases and divide it by the population of each country, that gives you the number of cases as a percentage of the population.

As of Sunday evening June 28th;

USA - 0.00789 %

Canada - 0.00274 %

So then Canada has 34.728 % the number of cases per capita that the US has.

That sounds pretty successful to me and the numbers are not getting any better as the days pass.

On Vancouver Island the reason we have lower stats with the Virus is “We have a moat around us” [emoticon] Sorry if you think we are being harsh with the border but we have worked very hard to avoid this Virus and it would be a shame to negate that now. This thing
is not done with us yet. It is better to err on the side of caution. When you look at the number of people who have died from this it is hard to see each one on its own. I bet their families would have liked us to have done more. I hope there is a light at the end of this dark tunnel......Mike

You can't live in a bubble forever. Sooner or later you have to emerge, and you will be exposed, of that there can be no doubt. It's not possible to avoid that reality, so you're just delaying the inevitable. Your personal health status when you are exposed, will determine your outcome. It's that simple.
Good luck with it, when you do get exposed.
God bless.

It's the CBC, so it's got to be suspect.

Are you joking? (I hope so).

CBC is pretty good at sticking to the truth. Indications of that are, they have been described as pro conservative, pro liberal, pro abortion, anti abortion, pro party in power, and pro opposition, in the same week.

How about living in the bubble until an effective vaccine is produced in quantity?
