Nunavut's only COVID-19 case was a false positive and Canada is so excited for them
Nunavut's only COVID-19 case has officially been declared a false positive. And in a heartwarming display of solidarity, Canadians are so excited for them.
The territory reported its first case of the virus on Thursday from a patient in Pond Inlet. However, a second test has showed that the first test was a false positive, meaning Nunavut is still coronavirus-free.
And Canadians across the country are cheering.
not sure why I'm staking so much emotionally on Nunavut being free of covid, but I am. STAY SAFE NUNAVUT— john "as b/4, someday, god willing" fink (@adr) May 4, 2020
Especially because Nunavut currently only has seven ventilators, meaning any spread of the virus could have disastrous healthcare consequences.

As COVID-19 spreads across the country, Nunavut is the last jurisdiction in Canada to remain free of the virus.
