Surely, you wasn't planning to drive down ?
Planes fly over borders, they dont stop at them.
Flights are cancelled until June 30 according to our airline carrier website Air Transat that we tend to use
Air Canada is the only airline flying from Canada in June that I am aware of.
Air Canada Vacations Returning in June
With the quarantine measures I am sure there isn't enough demand for the others to consider starting up yet:
Mexico just reported 2409 cases and 257 deaths in a single day
Yeah, they are at or near the peak.
But MX is huge like the US so you need to look regionally as Steve always posts.
You can still cross the border (I live in NY and work in Canada a lot (legally with papers)) but I would still have to be in quarantine for 14 days each coming and going. So everyone is staying put on whichever side they were on when that “rule” was put in.
Canada reported 1225 cases with 170 deaths on the same day.
Mexico Population 130 Million, Canada 38 Million
Did not realize Mexico was at 130M! Wow! Does that count California?
Otherwise....Makes sense directionally since something like 80% of Canadian population lives in 4 metro areas.
Rule #1 of Covid-19 prognosticating. "We shan't compare numbers". (Testing and hospitalization/death reporting requirements are way different between countries. Even between provinces/states).
Rule #2.. "This shall too pass"
Canada testing rate IHME | COVID-19 Projections
Mexico testing rate IHME | COVID-19 Projections
USA testing rate IHME | COVID-19 Projections
UK testing rate IHME | COVID-19 Projections
When people throw out figures as if they discovered some kind of revelation that no one else knew about, then it's game on.
As I mentioned before, Mexico is conducting testing in line with WHO Sentinel testing guidelines. Only those with symptoms are tested.
There is not the luxury of testing every man and his dog regardless, like other countries are currently doing.
Today the UK announced 133,784 tests were conducted yesterday, with 3,560 positives. It's not even 3%.
