According to data from the Public Health Agency of Canada as of April 9 for the last week, the case rate per 100,000 people was 133. Meanwhile, the CDC's data from the same day had the U.S. seven-day case rate at 135.8 per 100,000 people.

The United States is currently ahead of Canada when it comes to vaccine rollouts, with 34.5% of their population having received at least one dose, while only 15.22% of Canadians have gotten at least one dose.
