New data show that Canada’s average daily confirmed COVID-19 cases (per million people) are greater than that of the United States for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.
A graphic from Our World in Data, which uses global COVID-19 statistics from Johns Hopkins University, shows that on Friday, April 9, Canada averaged more cases per million people than the U.S.
This trend continued until April 12, which is the last time the data was updated.
As of Monday, Our World in Data shows that more than 36% of Americans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while over 19% of Canadians have received at least one dose.
