Canada's COVID-19 Case Rate For The Past Week Is Almost The Same As The US
For the past seven days, Canada's rate of COVID-19 cases, which is the number of new cases reported per 100,000 people, has inched closer to the United States' rate.
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 small difference in case rates may indicate that the situation in the two countries is similar lately.
However, when you compare the rate of total cases per 100,000 people since the start of the pandemic, the U.S. maintains a higher rate at 9,282, while Canada's is 2,750.
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.
