➡️1 in 46 Canadians has COVID this week (h/t @MoriartyLab)

➡️At any time, a proportion of people with COVID will be asymptomatic, pre-symptomatic, or have mild symptoms that they've attributed to something else

➡️ - the best mask is an N95


Please boost even if this isn't for you. On Mastodon, favoriting is not like 'liking' on the other site. All it does is it tell the writer you liked it, there is no algorithm.

Well, people following me here know what is going on.


Deaths per million in Canada:
2020: 409
2021: 379
2022: 492

Canada has a population of about 38 million, so this translates into 18,700 deaths from Covid in Canada in 2022.

For 2023, as far as we know for now, suggests a similar death rate this year.

IHME predicts that 80% mask use in public spaces (ie, a mask mandate) would reduce deaths by two-thirds within 2 months. That's 12,500 preventable deaths in Canada, over the course of a year. Much more in larger countries or countries with higher current death rates.
