It’s a grim milestone in Canada. 

COVID-19 has killed more people than the SARS epidemic. 

In 2003 during SARS, 44 people died in a six-month span but 53 people have already died in just two months.

That’s when COVID-19 was first reported in Canada. 

The strain of this coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is much more contagious than the strain that causes SARS.
