It may seem like all bad news all the time, but there have been over a thousand recoveries from COVID-19 reported in Canada so far.
While it will still take time for the curve to flatten, and although physical distancing may not be ending just yet, there is some good news coming out of Canada amid the coronavirus pandemic.
As of April 1, there have been 1,522 known recoveries reported across the country.

Health officials have made it clear, while it does appear that physical distancing is beginning to help, we are not out of the woods just yet, and it is more important than ever to continue these measures to flatten the curve, to help more Canadians recover, and to reduce the impact on our health services.
2/3 Canadians are continuing to practice #PhysicalDistancing to protect themselves & others from #COVID19. #Snowbirds, #Marchbreak & vacationers coming into 🇨🇦, follow the mandatory quarantine order to join #TeamCanada & #DoYourPart.
