Canada TV: This map shows why it would be 'terrifying' to open Canada-U.S. border [View all]

While Republicans continue to look for scapegoats and wage war on U.S. citizens, rather than taking science and facts seriously, Canada is quietly doing a fairly effective job at fighting the spread of COVID-19.



TORONTO -- A map showing the startling contrast between Canada and the United States in the fight against COVID-19 has an infectious disease expert "terrified" at the thought of reopening the border.

As Canadian COVID-19 trends continue to decline, cases in the United States propel upwards. The Canada-U.S. border remains closed until July 21 but reopening it to non-essential travel anytime soon would likely lead to a resurgence in cases, infectious disease specialist Dr. Abdu Sharkawy said.

"It absolutely terrifies me to think of the prospect of any sort of easing of restrictions that could allow greater travel between Canada and the United States," he said, adding that the United States could hit 100,000 new infections per day sometime in the next week.

"These numbers are just unfathomable and astronomical when you consider what we have dealt with here in Canada over the course of three or four months."
