COVID-19: The Kawartha Lakes Pandemic Time Capsule


A collection of local and general news articles, photographs, experiences shared by citizens of the City of Kawartha Lakes during the COVID-19 global pandemic shutdown, March 17, 2020 to the present day. The COVID-19 pandemic made the world reconsider standards of public health care, childcare, and debate on the future of the working world as global economies shut down behind lockdowns and stay-at-home orders to protect their citizens from the fast-spreading novel coronavirus or COVID-19. In Ontario, outbreaks at many long-term care homes led to an investigation in September 2020 into the living and working situations within the homes following deployment of Canadian military to support exhausted front-line long-term care home workers and alleviate short-staffed situations. As of January 5, 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic infected 617,061 Canadians (197,360 in Ontario, 276 in Kawartha Lakes). 521,279 people recovered from the infection (166,790 in Ontario, 223 in Kawartha Lakes). 16,187 Canadians died due to COVID-19 (4,730 in Ontario, 32 in Kawartha Lakes). As of January 5, 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic infected 86,453,154 people worldwide. 61,265,537 people recovered from the virus. 1,867,986 deaths due to COVID-19 were reported worldwide.
