One year since Canada’s first confirmed COVID-19 case.

The patient, when he came into the hospital ER in Toronto with what seemed to be mild pneumonia, wasn’t that sick and might otherwise have been sent home. Except the man had just returned from China, where a new viral disease was spreading rapidly. His chest X-rays were also unusual.

Less than two days after admission to Sunnybrook Hospital, the man would become “Patient Zero” — the first COVID-19 case in Canada.

For health-care workers, it’s been a long year. This pandemic is still raging, even as vaccines are being administered.

Staff have been working non-stop since last January and it’s not slowing down now. Health-care teams are tired. There’s a lot of concern about burnout. It has been an extremely challenging year.

Despite COVID-19’s deadly toll, the vast majority of COVID-19 patients, like “Patient Zero,” recover. However, for some of those, their battle might never be over. Some will have lifelong lung scarring and damage to their lungs.

Thank you to our healthcare workers who continue to be there for these patients everyday day.
