At noon on April 7, Canada had seen a total of 17,063 known cases of the corona virus, according to The latest COVID-19 update from the Government of Canada.
While total means when compared to some of the hardest hit countries, such as the United States, Italy, China, and Spain, it fails to explain many cases that might not be confirmed because those who feel sick just stay at home, or do not become eligible for testing limited.
Still, this is Canada’s most official appearance to understand the trajectory of the virus in Canada, something we have been watching for the past few weeks.
And while we are above the total number of new cases known for each of our closed provinces since the pandemic began, we decided to see exactly how known Canadian cases are broken down by province and region.
The number registered included publicly reported and probable cases, according to the Government of Canada, on 7 April.
As seen on the map above, Quebec is almost as devastated as the others.
