John Ivison: The COVID mission is far from accomplished, despite Trudeau’s latest feel-good message – National Post

After a very challenging spring, things are continuing to move in the right direction

Certainly, if you compare Canada to those three laggards, or Sweden, Brazil and Russia — as the graph does — then this country has fared reasonably well. The grim fandango of death and infection being danced in the U.S. has led to a new prediction of 180,000 fatalities by October (from 125,000 now). Canada’s death rate per 100,000 people is far lower than the U.K., France or U.S.

But when compared to countries that have coped well with COVID, the performance looks less impressive. Canada’s death rate per 100,000 people is double that of peer countries such as Germany, Denmark and Norway. Even when held up against the U.S., Canada is not unimpeachable — 8.3 per cent of all cases resulted in death in Canada, compared to a 4.9-per-cent case-fatality rate in the States. This reflects the appalling carnage in Canadian long-term care homes, where 20,602 cases resulted in 6,920 deaths, fully 81 per cent of all fatalities in this country.
