Nova Scotia's pandemic started in 2020 with an intense first wave of infections, then its settled down so much that the second wave in December was more like a ripple. But things changed again, and a massive third COVID wave arrived in April. It took the disease 407 days—more than a year—to infect 2,000 Nova Scotians, and just 15 days to get 2,000 more, pushing past a milestone 4,000 cases on May 10. The third wave's scale is so far beyond the province's experience, we created this interactive chart from provincial data to help explain it.
