On the afternoon of March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) a global pandemic. Since December 2019, confirmed cases of COVID-19 have increased exponentially and there are now over 240,000 confirmed cases and over 9,000 deaths worldwide. Canada is also currently experiencing exponential growth in confirmed number of COVID-19 cases.
