COVID-19 in the U.S.: How do Canada’s provinces rank against American states? – CTV

TORONTO — How do Canadian provinces and territories compare to American states in terms of COVID-19 cases? We’ve calculated reported cases per million people each day of the pandemic to get an idea of how the two countries stack up. During the first two waves of the pandemic, Canada’s highest-reporting regions were low compared to places south of the border. But in the third wave, that’s changed. As of mid April, Canada’s seven-day average reached its highest point of the pandemic.

In a sorted list of the provinces and states (including the territories and Washington, D.C.), Canada’s first region, Yukon, ranks 36th when it comes to recent cases per capita. Currently, 16 states have fewer average daily cases per million.

When it comes to all-time peaks for Canada’s provinces and territories, Northwest Territories tops the list for Canada at 20th overall in terms of highest all-time average daily cases per million people.
