Here's how each province in Canada is doing with COVID-19 compared to U.S. states
When it comes to Canada and the United States' battles against COVID-19, it truly is a tale of two cities (or two countries, as the case may be).
And while Canada is doing better overall when it comes to quashing the virus, there are a handful of U.S. states that are doing better than certain provinces.
Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia, for example, all have higher COVID-19 case counts than at least one U.S. state.
However, Canada's hardest-hit province, Manitoba, still ranks 48th on the list — way below most U.S. states.
Although it may feel like COVID-19 cases are spiking in Canada (which they are, in Western provinces), this list really puts into perspective the disparity between Canada and the U.S.
The hardest-hit state (Mississippi), for example, has roughly 11 times the case numbers per capita compared to Canada's hardest-hit province (Manitoba).
The complete breakdown of current numbers, ranked from the highest Canadian provinces and U.S. states to the lowest by average COVID-19 cases for every million people, is as follows:
