COVID-19: The Kawartha Lakes Pandemic Time Capsule


A collection of local and general news articles, photographs, experiences shared by citizens of the City of Kawartha Lakes during the COVID-19 global pandemic shutdown, March - present day 2020. 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 October 13, 2020) 185,337 Canadians (60,692 in Ontario, 183 in Kawartha Lakes). 156,436 people recovered from the infection (51,729 in Ontario, 164 in Kawartha Lakes). 9,645 Canadians died due to COVID-19 (3,017 in Ontario, 32 in Kawartha Lakes). Worldwide (as of Ocotber 13, 2020), the COVID-19 pandemic infected 37,974,575 people. 26,337,656 people recovered from the virus. 1,083,131 deaths due to COVID-19 were reported worldwide.
