On April 6, Canada’s rate of new COVID-19 cases came as close as its ever been to that of the United States since the beginning of the pandemic, as Canada posted 180.8 cases per million population, while the U.S. posted 195.7 per million population. macleans.ca/news/canada-li…
And our case count is rising so fast—up 28 per cent in the past week alone—that we’re likely to exceed the plateauing U.S. rate in the coming days. 
Those numbers come as a jolt. For the past 13 months, Canadians have taken comfort in the idea that our government-funded health care system is decidedly better than the confusing public-private system south of the border.
So, how have things changed? @patriciatreble reports: macleans.ca/news/canada-li…

We’re inching toward an awkward new phase of the pandemic: one where some countries have vaccines and others don’t, where some people are vaccinated and others are not, and where demands to reopen will only get louder and more urgent. macleans.ca/news/canada/va…
Vaccine passports are already being used in other parts of the world. In Israel, a “Green Pass” that confirms vaccination status has become essential for daily life, allowing access to gyms, movie theatres and restaurants.
Europe, which has fallen behind Canada in the race to vaccinate its population, is a testing ground for myriad new technologies that could be applied in much the same way. macleans.ca/news/canada/va…
