Canada has been so successful in flattening the curve that the country is doing it quicker than most others.

Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam spoke at a press conference recently, where she said Canada is ahead of many countries when it comes to curbing the spread of COVID-19. That includes the U.K., Italy and the U.S.

Meanwhile, countries like South Korea and Japan have managed to keep their overall curve smaller.

Canada has a total of 104,000 COVID-19 cases, with more than 67,000 of those recovered. The country accounts for about 1.02% of worldwide cases, while the U.S. accounts for around 25% of cases.

In that regard, it may not be surprising to hear Canadians prefer to keep the Canada-U.S. border closed for now.
