It’s a grim milestone in Canada. COVID-19 has killed more people than the SARS epidemic.
In 2003 during SARS, 44 people died in a six-month span but 53 people have already died in just two months. That’s when COVID-19 was first reported in Canada.
The strain of this coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is much more contagious than the strain that causes SARS.
