  4. lmao, how can they say the COVID-19 measures is working? Based on the number of confirmed cases? Compared to other countries? Come on. Canada only tests COVID-19 virus with 3 specific group of people. Rest of the citizens who show the syndromes are just sitting at home and praying they don’t have the virus.
