  1. Action 1: Implementing travel restrictions and border controls.

  2. Action 2: Providing financial support to individuals and businesses affected by the pandemic.

    Evaluation: Financial support was crucial for economic survival, but the long-term effects of increased government debt and potential inflation may indirectly affect mortality rates through economic hardship and reduced access to healthcare in the future.

  3. Action 3: Collaborating with provincial and territorial governments to coordinate a national response.
