The province’s low numbers are thanks to many reasons, including strong leadership and the government preparing for oncoming cases, early. But social distancing has also made an impact as to how the province fights COVID-19.

Our shared efforts to flatten the curve make a difference,” said Henry in a press release. “Each day that we hold the line, we are stronger and better for it.”

The province has the fourth highest number of COVID-19 cases, with Quebec, Ontario and Alberta sitting above.

Canada has a total of 30,106 cases with 9,729 recoveries.
