Stats coming out of Canada’s long-term care facilities are dismal and point to an endemic problem that, if anticipated, could have prevented some of the deaths of our elderly citizens due to COVID-19. This says a lot about the condition of the facilities even before the pandemic. It’s no coincidence that nearly half of Canada’s deaths have occurred in these homes. Currently several outbreaks across the country are being investigated, the concentration being in the hardest-hit provinces of Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia.
