It’s remarkable how the world has changed in a matter of a few weeks.
The COVID-19 pandemic has sent the world into a panic.
Health systems that were already overworked and on the edge have struggled to cope with the rapid spread of cases from China’s Wubei province outward.
The World Health Organization’s pandemic declaration has prompted border closures, quarantine / self-isolation measures, and states of emergency.
Measures to encourage ‘social isolation’ have shuttered businesses, schools, and public spaces.
World markets, which hate uncertainty, acted predictably and erased trillions in wealth.
Millions of layoffs have hit household budgets – leaving the perennially vulnerable and precarious even more so.
Tens of thousands of families have lost loved ones.
And, since there is no vaccine yet, there is no end in sight.
It has all seemed very bleak, indeed.
But public health officials and governments here in Canada have, so far, performed generally well.
Municipalities, provinces, and the federal government have unveiled a wide range of temporary support measures, grace periods, and stimulus packages to help individuals and businesses survive the current crisis – with more to come.
A federal stimulus package (roughly 3% of the national GDP) is the most generous so far. And even it is being characterized as a first step.
What comes next is still very much up in the air.
That’s where we come in.
