The COVID-19 pandemic made the world reconsider standards of public health care, childcare, and debate on the future of the working world as global economies shut down behind lockdowns and stay-at-home orders to protect their citizens from the fast-spreading novel coronavirus or COVID-19.
In Ontario, outbreaks at many long-term care homes led to an investigation in September 2020 into the living and working situations within the homes following deployment of Canadian military to support exhausted front-line long-term care home workers and alleviate short-staffed situations.
The COVID-19 pandemic infected (as of June 22, 2020) 101,550 Canadians (33,476 in Ontario, 161 in Kawartha Lakes). 64,287 people recovered from the infection (28,719 in Ontario, 138 in Kawartha Lakes). 8,433 Canadians died due to COVID-19 (2,606 in Ontario, 32 in Kawartha Lakes).
Worldwide (as of June 22, 2020), the COVID-19 pandemic infected 9,051,949 people. 4,842,043 people recovered from the virus. 470,822 deaths due to COVID-19 were reported worldwide.
