Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is making a housing announcement in Kanata, Ont. on Wednesday before taking questions from media on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the government’s response.
During an update on Canada’s COVID-19 cases and vaccine rollout on Tuesday, chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam discussed a recent study that suggests Canada’s death toll from COVID-19 may be much higher than the official count.
“Some of these studies will shed further light on the actual impact of COVID-19,” she said.
In the new report published by the Royal Society of Canada, researchers estimate that between Feb. 1 and Nov. 28, 2020, around 6,000 deaths of people aged 45 and older caused directly by COVID-19 have gone uncounted in the official statistics. In total, around two-thirds of COVID-19’s real death toll may have been missed, the report suggests.
“It’s even more important than ever to keep up with vaccinations,” Tam added.
Procurement Minister Anita Anand reported that 44 million COVID-19 vaccine doses had been delivered to provinces and territories, with more than 36 million doses administered. She said that 77 per cent of eligible Canadians have received at least one vaccine dose.
