Canada got plenty of warning about the coronavirus. We even got a dress rehearsal in the form of SARS. So why was our COVID-19 outbreak this bad? As you may have heard, Canada can proudly lay claim to one of the largest sections of Planet Earth that is completely clear of COVID-19: Nunavut. The territory has had zero cases of the novel coronavirus, and with high rates of respiratory disease and not the best medical care, they’re aiming to keep it that way. So how did Nunavut stay COVID free? Isolation. Nunavut is an entirely fly-in territory; there is no road access to the South. So when the whole coronavirus thing breaks out, it’s a pretty easy fix for Nunavut.
