FUREY: Latest StatsCan data offers more on COVID-19 comorbidities


A new Statistics Canada report sheds light on national comorbidity numbers for COVID-19 deaths that occurred during the first wave, the most detailed release of its kind to date. “Of the over 9,500 COVID-involved deaths between March and July, the majority (90%) had at least one other cause, condition or complication reported on the certificate,” explains the report. It also concludes that not a single Canadian under the age of 45 died of COVID-19 during the first wave without contending with “at least one other disease or condition”.
