As APEC's CEO explained in the March 18 webinar, the duration and depth of the economic impacts of the current situation will depend on how quickly the spread of COVID-19 is contained, not just in Atlantic Canada, but also in other provinces, the US and other trading partners. This will determine when business activities, markets and international travel can be re-opened.
APEC is therefore tracking the number of reported COVID-19 cases in the region's largest export markets and all provinces. Note: the number of reported cases depends on various factors, including the intensity of testing in each jurisdiction. The following charts will be updated weekly every Thursday by 10am ADT.
