    America has always prided itself on being the best. What happened? This op is on Canada but other nations, and even some of our States, are handling Covid-19 more efficiently.

    For those who have not seen it, I have been compiling daily tracking data from the website

    Worldometer.

    Since DT said over a month ago that we could see 'light at the end of the tunnel' I have been examining the available data to identify when we reach the peak in Active Cases of COVID-19.

    We have not reached it yet.

    You can see our progress or comment here:

    Masks - do they work. This surprised me. It seems distancing and being outside are the way to go if you are in high risk group.

    'Filter efficiency was measured across a wide range of small particle sizes (0.02 to 1 Ám) at 33 and 99 L/min. N95 respirators had efficiencies greater than 95% (as expected). For the entire range of particles tested, t-shirts had 10% efficiency, scarves 10% to 20%, cloth masks 10% to 30%, sweatshirts 20% to 40%, and towels 40%. All of the cloth masks and materials had near zero efficiency at 0.3 Ám, a particle size that easily penetrates into the lungs.4'
