I’m confused, or is my math wrong?

According to the case counts (as of April 7, 2021);

There were 73,200 new cases in a population of 328.2 million people in the US. That is 223 / million people.

There were 7,148 new cases in a population of 37.59 million people in Canada. That is 190 / million people.


I think they are also considering how many people have been vaccinated.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

In deaths per million USA nearly 3 times the rate in Canada. Both are lousy

Canada's vaccination rate lags far behind the US. Canada has approximately 2% of their population fully vaccinated, while the US has over 20% fully vaccinated. The US is administering 4,000,000 doses a day, which is one for every 82 citizens while Canada is administering 270,000 doses a day, or one dose for every 139 residents.
In Canada, the 7 day moving average of new cases has risen from 2850 March 1st to over 7800 as of April 9th. In the US, where restrictions have been loosened dramatically, the 7 day moving average of cases has actually fallen from March 1st's rate of 67,000 per day to the current 65,000 per day.
Maybe the US isn't so bad after all.

Canada doesn’t have vaccine manufactures, so we have to purchase ours from other countries from around the world. There has been disruption in the delivery of vaccine from around the world to Canada and the Provinces.
Now if you want to talk about good Canadian Beer, we have plenty of that with enough on hand to ensure every beer drinker in Canada is fully equipped for camping getaways
I rest my case.

Canada purchased their vaccines by quarters. X amount of vaccines to be delivered in each. This allowed the providers to delay deliveries to the end of each quarter. Oops. Canada also took steps to negotiate lower prices causing suppliers to naturally sell allocations to higher bidders. Bargain basement shoppers often get only the leftovers.

I don’t think it’s that much of an issue since the land border has been closed for over a year!!! Sadly, that’s just my luck! Had to wait through the entire Trump presidency before we could retire and then to top it off, a global pandemic hit, everyone got into RVs and camping, and now I can’t get into Canada to find a summer property to consider purchasing - and if/when I do, prices will most likely be significantly higher than they were pre-pandemic!!! - If I didn’t have bad luck, I’d have no luck - smh ??????

Did you work for the Trump Administration? If not, why would you have to wait thru any presidential term before you could retire? Could it possibly be that because of your age or length of employment you didn't qualify for retirement benefits until a certain date and that had nothing at all to do with whomever was president? I turn 65 during the current administration, do I have to thank President Biden for allowing me to qualify for Medicare?

Too bad the U.S. doesn't do that with Mexico. The border heading south is wide open.

Well it was an interesting discussion.
This thread will be shut down very soon now I think.
