Coronavirus to have a negative impact on the economy of Canada

Canada has one of the world’s most advanced economies. Thanks to its early development, the country’s gross domestic product per capita at purchasing power parity now stands at over $50,000. For such a developed nation, which the dominant service industries, in particular finance, global emergencies might be catastrophic. This especially is true in today’s global, well-integrated world. Like any other well-developed nation, Canada also went through a transformation from agriculture and heavy industry-based economy into the service dominated one. The country is home to some of the brightest minds on earth, thanks to its quality educational system and the enormous space for personal and professional growth. Canada also is one of the top countries for economic and personal freedom. The northern American nation also has the world’s third-largest oil reserves. This is exactly what boosted its development throughout the 20th century. As a result, despite the country’s strong services sector, fossil fuels still rema

2019–20 coronavirus pandemic

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).[6][b] The outbreak started in Wuhan, Hubei province, China, in December 2019. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak to be a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30 January 2020 and recognized it as a pandemic on 11 March 2020.[8][9] As of 7 April 2020, approximately 1.41 million cases of COVID-19 have been reported in 209 countries and territories,[5] resulting in approximately 81,200 deaths.[4] Approximately 298,000 people have recovered.[4] The virus is mainly spread during close contact[c] and by small droplets produced when those infected cough, sneeze or talk.[10][11][12] These droplets may also be produced during breathing; however, they rapidly fall to the ground or surfaces and are not generally spread through the air over large distances.[10][13][14] People may also become infected by touching a con

2020 coronavirus pandemic in Canada

An ongoing worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was first confirmed to have spread to Canada on January 27, 2020, after a man returned to Toronto from travel in China, including Wuhan. As of April 6, 2020, there have been 16,667 confirmed cases in Canada, 3,616 recoveries, 345 deaths, and over 300,000 tests performed.[1] Most of those cases are in Ontario (4,347 cases, 132 deaths)[2] and Quebec (7,944 cases, 94 deaths).[3] Confirmed cases have been reported in 12 of Canada's 13 provinces and territories, with Nunavut being the only remaining territory without a confirmed case. An additional 13 cases involve repatriated citizens from the Grand Princess cruise ship.[4][5][6][7] Until March, all cases were linked to recent travel to a country with a substantial number of cases. The first case of community transmission in Canada was confirmed in British Columbia on March 5,[8] and Toronto's chief health officer announce

Impact of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic on education

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic has affected educational systems worldwide, leading to the widespread closures of schools and universities. As of 28 March 2020, over 1.7 billion learners were out of school due to school closures in response to COVID-19. According to UNESCO monitoring, over 100 countries have implemented nationwide closures, impacting nearly 90% of the world's student population.[1] School closures impact not only students, teachers, and families, but have far-reaching economic and societal consequences.[2][3] School closures in response to COVID-19 have shed light on various social and economic issues, including student debt,[4] digital learning,[5][6] food insecurity,[7] and homelessness,[8][9] as well as access to childcare,[10] health care,[11] housing,[12] internet,[13] and disability services.[14] Background Efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19 through non-pharmaceutical interventions and preventive measures such as social-distancing and self-isolation have prompted the widespre

Socio-economic impact of the 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak

The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak has had further reaching consequences beyond the disease and efforts to quarantine it. There have been widespread reports of supply shortages of pharmaceuticals[1] and manufactured goods due to factory disruption in China,[2] with certain localities (such as Italy[3] and Hong Kong[4]) seeing panic buying and consequent shortages of food and other essential grocery items.[5] The technology industry in particular has been warning about delays to shipments of electronic goods.[6] A number of provincial-level administrators of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) were dismissed over their handling of the quarantine efforts in Central China, a sign of discontent with the political establishment's response to the outbreak in those regions. It is likely in a move to protect Communist Party general secretary Xi Jinping from people's anger over the coronavirus outbreak.[7] Some commentators have suggested that outcry over the disease could be a rare protest against the CCP.[8] Additional

Black Monday (2020)

Black Monday was a global stock market crash on 9 March 2020 that occurred during the 2020 stock market crash.[2] Markets opened several percent lower, having fallen greatly during the preceding two weeks. Global stock markets suffered from the greatest single-day fall since 2008, during the Great Recession.[3] This record crash was soon surpassed three days later on Black Thursday. Notable contributing factors included the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia–Saudi Arabia oil price war.[2][4][5] In the United States, a trading curb, or circuit breaker, was triggered after stocks dropped sharply, halting trade for 15 minutes.[6] The FTSE 100 Index opened 560 points (8.6%) lower to 5920.[2] Indices in Asia, continental Europe, and the United States also fell by several percent on the same day, with the worst affected, Italy's FTSE MIB, opening 11% lower.[7] Other financial market effects included a rush to the safety of government bonds as 10-year American Treasury yields fell below 0.5% for the first time ever,

Social distancing

People maintaining social distance while waiting to enter a store. To allow shoppers to maintain distance within the store, only a limited number are allowed inside at one time. Social distancing reduces the rate of disease transmission and can stop an outbreak. Social distancing, or physical distancing,[1][2][3] is a set of non-pharmaceutical interventions or measures taken to prevent the spread of a contagious disease by maintaining a physical distance between people and reducing the number of times people come into close contact with each other.[1][4] It involves keeping a distance of six feet or two meters from others and avoiding gathering together in large groups.[5][6] By reducing the probability that a given uninfected person will come into physical contact with an infected person, the disease transmission can be suppressed, resulting in fewer deaths.[1][4] The measures are combined with good respiratory hygiene and hand washing.[7][8] During the 2019–2020 coronavirus pandemic, the World Health O

In February, eleven municipalities in northern Italy were identified as the centres of the two main Italian clusters and placed under quarantine. The majority of positive cases in other regions traced

Impact of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic on cinema

The sign on the door of a closed Regal movie theater in New York City, March 2020 The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic has had a substantial impact on the film industry. Across the world and to varying degrees, cinemas and movie theaters have been closed, festivals have been cancelled or postponed, and film releases have been moved to future dates or delayed indefinitely. As cinemas and movie theaters closed, the global box office dropped by billions of dollars, streaming became more popular, and the stock of film exhibitors dropped dramatically. Many blockbusters originally scheduled to be released between March and August were postponed or canceled around the world, with film productions also halted. The Chinese film industry had lost US$2 billion by March 2020, having closed all its cinemas during the Lunar New Year period that sustains the industry across Asia.

Price of oil

Price of oil from 1861 to 2020 from Our World in Data The price of oil, or the oil price, generally refers to the spot price of a barrel of benchmark crude oil—a reference price for buyers and sellers of crude oil such as West Texas Intermediate (WTI), Brent Crude, Dubai Crude, OPEC Reference Basket, Tapis crude, Bonny Light, Urals oil, Isthmus and Western Canadian Select (WCS).[1][2] There is a differential in the price of a barrel of oil based on its grade—determined by factors such as its specific gravity or API gravity and its sulfur content—and its location—for example, its proximity to tidewater and refineries. Heavier, sour crude oils lacking in tidewater access—such as Western Canadian Select—are less expensive than lighter, sweeter oil—such as WTI. According to a January 2020 EIA report, the average price of Brent crude oil in 2019 was $64 per barrel compared to $71 per barrel in 2018. The average price of WTI crude oil was $57 per barrel in 2019 compared to $64 in 2018.[3] The price of oil droppe

Basic income

On 4 October 2013, Swiss activists from Generation Grundeinkommen organized a performance in Bern in which roughly 8 million coins, one coin representing one person out of Switzerland's population, were dumped on a public square. This was done in celebration of the successful collection of more than 125,000 signatures, forcing the government to hold a referendum in 2016 on whether or not to incorporate the concept of basic income in the federal constitution. The measure did not pass, with 76.9% voting against changing the federal constitution to support basic income.[1] Basic income, also called universal basic income (UBI), citizen's income, citizen's basic income, basic income guarantee, basic living stipend, guaranteed annual income, or universal demogrant, is a governmental public program for a periodic payment delivered to all on an individual basis without means test or work requirement.[2] The incomes would be: Unconditional: A basic income would vary with age, but with no other conditions.

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic began in Asia in Wuhan, Hubei, China, and has spread widely through the continent. As of 22 March 2020, at least one case of COVID-19 has been reported in every country in Asia except Tajikistan and Turkmenistan, while North Korea and Yemen have reported suspected cases. The worst hit countries in Asia at present are China and Iran. Several Southeast Asian countries experienced a significant rise in cases following a Tabligh Akbar event from February 27 to March 1 at a mosque in Kuala Lumpur, where many people are believed to have been infected.[3][4] The event had about 16,000 attendees, including about 1,500 from outside Malaysia.[4] Attendees shared food, sat close together, and held hands at the event. According to guests, the leaders of the event didn't talk about COVID-19[5] precautions, but most attendees washed their hands during the event. Malaysian authorities were criticized for allowing the event to go forward.[3] Confirmed cases Afghanistan On 23 February 2020

Quarantine

USA president Nixon greeting the Apollo 11 astronauts in NASA's mobile quarantine facility Signal flag "Lima", called the "Yellow Jack", which when flown in harbor means the ship is under quarantine A quarantine is a restriction on the movement of people and goods which is intended to prevent the spread of disease or pests. It is often used in connection to disease and illness, preventing the movement of those who may have been exposed to a communicable disease, but do not have a confirmed medical diagnosis. It is distinct from medical isolation, in which those confirmed to be infected with a communicable disease are isolated from the healthy population. Quarantine considerations are often one aspect of border control. The concept of quarantine has been known since biblical times, and is known to have been practised through history in various places. Notable quarantines in modern history include that of the village of Eyam in 1665 during the bubonic plague outbreak in England; East Samoa during the 191

The first case of the pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was confirmed in Cambodia on 27 January 2020.[2] According to Global Health Security Index's report in 2019, Cambodia ranked 89th out of 195 countries in preparedness for infectious disease outbreak.[3] Background On 12 January, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that a novel coronavirus was the cause of a respiratory illness in a cluster of people in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China, who had initially come to the attention of the WHO on 31 December 2019. This cluster was initially linked to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan City. However, some of those first cases with laboratory confirmed results had no link to the market, and the source of the epidemic is unknown.[4][5] Unlike SARS of 2003, the case fatality ratio for COVID-19 [6][7] has been much lower, but the transmission has been significantly greater, with a significant total death toll.[8][6] COVID-19 typically appears with about seven days of flu-like sym

2020 coronavirus pandemic in Alberta

The 2020 coronavirus pandemic in Alberta is part of an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The Canadian province of Alberta has the fourth-most number of cases of COVID-19 in Canada. By March 31, there were 754 confirmed cases and 9 deaths.[1] The majority of cases have been in the Calgary zone, which had 453 cases as of March 31.[2] Jason Kenney, the Premier of Alberta, working closely with the Emergency Management Cabinet Committee, followed the recommendations of Alberta's Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Deena Hinshaw, in response to the "rapidly evolving global threat". A state of public health emergency was declared on March 17. Alberta's public health laboratory greatly increased tests for COVID-19, reaching 1,000 a day by March 8, and 3,000 a day by March 26.[3] Hinshaw said that by March 20, "World-wide, Alberta has been conducting among the highest number of tests per capita

Sustainable energy

Sustainable energy is the practice of using energy in a way that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."[1][2] Meeting the world's needs for electricity, heating, cooling, and power for transport in a sustainable way is widely considered to be one of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. Worldwide, nearly a billion people lack access to electricity, and around 3 billion people rely on smoky fuels such as wood, charcoal or animal dung in order to cook. These and fossil fuels are a major contributor to air pollution, which causes an estimated 7 million deaths per year. Production and consumption of energy emits over 70% of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. Proposed pathways for limiting global warming to 1.5 °C describe rapid implementation of low-emission methods of producing electricity and a shift towards more use of electricity in sectors such as transport. The pathways also include measures to reduce ener

In the United States, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) fell exactly 508 points (22.6%), accompanied by crashes in the futures and options markets.[2] This was the largest one-day percentage drop in Dow Jones history. Significant selling created steep price declines throughout the day, particularly during the last hour and a half of trading. The S&P 500 and Wilshire 5000 indices each declined more than 18 percent, and the S&P 500 futures contract declined 29 percent.[3] Total trading volume was so large that the computer and communications systems in place at the time were overwhelmed, leaving orders unfilled for an hour or more.

Globalization

Globalization or globalisation is the process of interaction and integration among people, companies, and governments worldwide. As a complex and multifaceted phenomenon, globalization is considered by some as a form of capitalist expansion which entails the integration of local and national economies into a global, unregulated market economy.[1] Globalization has grown due to advances in transportation and communication technology. With the increased global interactions comes the growth of international trade, ideas, and culture. Globalization is primarily an economic process of interaction and integration that's associated with social and cultural aspects. However, conflicts and diplomacy are also large parts of the history of globalization, and modern globalization. Economically, globalization involves goods, services, the economic resources of capital, technology, and data.[2] Also, the expansions of global markets liberalize the economic activities of the exchange of goods and funds.

Effects of global warming on human health

The effects of global warming include its effects on human health.[1][2] The observed and projected increased frequency and severity of climate related impacts will further exacerbate the effects on human health.[3][4] This article describes some of those effects on individuals and populations. Impact of excess heat on the human body The human body requires evaporative cooling to prevent overheating, even with a low activity level. With excessive ambient heat and humidity, adequate evaporative cooling does not take place. Human thermoregulatory capacity is exceeded. A sustained wet-bulb temperature or Wet-bulb globe temperature exceeding about 35 °C (95 °F) can be fatal.[5][6] Human response to heat stress can be hyperthermia, heat stroke and other harmful effects. Heat illness can relate to many of the organs and systems including: brain, heart, kidneys, liver, etc.[7] Impact on disease Impact on infectious diseases Warming oceans and a changing climate are resulting in extreme weather patterns which ha

Zero Hedge, per its motto,[a] is bearish in its investment outlook and analysis, often deriving from its adherence to the Austrian School of economics and credit cycles.[8] While often labeled as a financial permabear,[9][10] Zero Hedge is also seen as a source of "cutting-edge news, rumors and gossip in the financial industry".[11] Over time, Zero Hedge expanded into non-financial analysis,[c] advocating what CNN Business called an anti-establishment and conspiratorial worldview, and which has been associated with alt-right views,[6][13] and a pro-Russian bias.[14][15][16][1] Other sources describe Zero Hedge as libertarian.[5][6] Zero Hedge's non-financial commentary has led to a number of § Site bans by various global social media platforms, some of which have been overturned

Economic policy of Donald Trump

The economic policy of the Donald Trump administration is characterized by individual and corporate tax cuts, attempts to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare"), trade protectionism, immigration restriction, and deregulation focused on the energy and financial sectors. A key part of President Trump's economic strategy during his first three years (2017–2019) was to boost economic growth via tax cuts and additional spending, both of which significantly increased federal budget deficits.[1][2] The positive economic situation he inherited from President Obama[3][4] continued, with a labor market approaching full employment and measures of household income and wealth continuing to improve further into record territory.[5] President Trump also implemented trade protectionism via tariffs, primarily on imports from China,[1] as part of his "America First" strategy.[6][7] According to the Congressional Budget Office, the number of Americans without health insurance increased under Trump,

Keystone Pipeline

The Keystone Pipeline System is an oil pipeline system in Canada and the United States, commissioned in 2010 and now owned solely by TC Energy.[8] It runs from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin in Alberta to refineries in Illinois and Texas, and also to oil tank farms and an oil pipeline distribution center in Cushing, Oklahoma.[9] The pipeline became well known when a planned fourth phase, Keystone XL, attracted opposition from environmentalists, becoming a symbol of the battle over climate change and fossil fuels. In 2015 Keystone XL was temporarily delayed by then-President Barack Obama. On January 24, 2017, President Donald Trump took action intended to permit the pipeline's completion. In 2013, the first two phases had the capacity to deliver up to 590,000 barrels per day (94,000 m3/d) of oil into the Midwest refineries.[10] Phase III has capacity to deliver up to 700,000 barrels per day (110,000 m3/d) to the Texas refineries.[11] By comparison, production of petroleum in the United States averaged

The economy of India is characterised as a developing market economy.[42][43] It is the world's fifth-largest economy by nominal GDP and the third-largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). According to the IMF, on a per capita income basis, India ranked 139th by GDP (nominal) and 118th by GDP (PPP) in 2018.[44] From independence in 1947 until 1991, successive governments promoted protectionist economic policies with extensive state intervention and regulation; the end of the Cold War and an acute balance of payments crisis in 1991 led to the adoption of a broad program of economic liberalisation.[45][46] Since the start of the 21st century, annual average GDP growth has been 6% to 7%,[43] and from 2014 to 2018, India was the world's fastest growing major economy, surpassing China.[47][48] Historically, India was the largest economy in the world for most of the two millennia from the 1st until 19th century.[49][50][51] The long-term growth perspective of the Indian economy remains positive due to its young po

A Republican, Trump was a businessman and reality television personality from New York City at the time of his 2016 presidential election victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. While Trump lost the popular vote by nearly three million votes, he won the Electoral College vote, 304 to 227, in a presidential contest that American intelligence agencies concluded was targeted by a Russian interference campaign. Trump has made many false or misleading statements during his campaign and presidency. The statements have been documented by fact-checkers, with political scientists and historians widely describing the phenomenon as unprecedented in modern American politics. Trump's approval rating has been stable, hovering at high-30 to mid-40 percent throughout his presidency. Trump rolled back numerous environmental protection

NIMBY

An airport is an example of a development that can cause a NIMBY reaction: though locals may benefit from improved transport links and new jobs, they may oppose it with objections to the noise, pollution and traffic it will generate. Unfinished tower in Tenleytown, Washington, D.C. that was later removed as a result of complaints from the neighborhood NIMBY (an acronym for the phrase "not in my back yard"),[1][2] or Nimby,[3] is a characterisation of opposition by residents to a proposed development in their local area. It carries the connotation that such residents are only opposing the development because it is close to them and that they would tolerate or support it if it were built farther away. In some cases, NIMBY opposition can be overcome through an open process and impact mitigation.[4] The residents are often called Nimbys, and their viewpoint is called Nimbyism. The NIMBY tendency has been described as a bipartisan phenomenon.[5] Examples of projects likely to be opposed include any sort of ho

History of the United States

The history of the United States, a country in North America, started with the arrival of Native Americans before 15,000 B.C. Numerous indigenous cultures formed, and many disappeared before 1500. The arrival of Christopher Columbus in the year 1492 started the European colonization of the Americas. Most colonies were formed after 1600, and the early records and writings of John Winthrop make the United States the first nation whose most distant origins are fully recorded.[1] By the 1760s, the thirteen British colonies contained 2.5 million people along the Atlantic Coast east of the Appalachian Mountains. After defeating France, the British government imposed a series of taxes, including the Stamp Act of 1765, rejecting the colonists' constitutional argument that new taxes needed their approval.

The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United States (U.S. or US) or America, is a country consisting of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and various possessions.[g] At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2), it is the world's third- or fourth-largest country by total area[c]. Most of the country is located in central North America between Canada and Mexico. With an estimated population of over 328 million, the U.S. is the third most populous country in the world. The capital is Washington, D.C., and the most populous city is New York City. Paleo-Indians migrated from Siberia to the North American mainland at least 12,000 years ago.[19] European colonization began in the 16th century. The United States emerged from the thirteen British colonies established along the East Coast. Numerous disputes between Great Britain and the colonies led to the American Revolutionary War lasting between 1775 and 1783, leading to independence.[20] The United States e
