Canada's Response to COVID-19
Dr. Steven J. Hoffman, Director of Global Strategy Lab and Professor of Global Health, Law and Political Science

Having learned harsh lessons from the 2003 SARS outbreak, Canada was an early actor to the COVID-19 pandemic, funding much-needed research earlier than any other country and implementing physical distancing measures when there were fewer than 1,000 cases confirmed nationally. In this talk, Professor Steven J. Hoffman will detail Canada’s response to COVID-19, draw comparisons to other countries, and discuss what’s next in our efforts to end this pandemic and start a gradual return to normalcy.
