USask unites: A USask student has launched a website tracking all cases of COVID-19 in Canada

Since the first cases of COVID-19 were announced in the province, members of the USask community have come together to support one another in these uncertain times.

Extraordinary circumstances have brought out extraordinary responses from members of our USask community. From frontline health-care workers to researchers looking for a solution to this global health threat, there are so many stories about people are working to make our home communities safer and healthy. Here are a few of the inspiring stories of our students, staff, faculty and alumni.

Second-year USask anatomy and cell biology student Noah Little has launched a website tracking all cases of COVID-19 in Canada.

“I was trying to see the cases across Canada and there really wasn’t a spot where I could see them all at once,” Little said in an interview with Global News.

Little said his reasons for starting the site aren’t work-motivated, though he is interested in a health-care career, possibly in medicine.

His methodology is simple. He’ll look at the daily schedule for provincial health news conferences, and plan his day around them. Whenever a COVID-19 case is reported, he adds it to his running tally.
