The novel coronavirus, which causes the disease COVID-19, has been classified as a pandemic by the World Health Organization after it spread worldwide.

Countries around the world imposed lockdowns and curfews, and asked people to self-isolate or practise social distancing to try to control the spread of the virus.

Now, months after those moves, several countries are cautiously reopening — including Canada.

On Saturday, Canada’s COVID-19 case count surpassed 95,000. Nearly 7,800 people in Canada have lost their lives to the illness.
