Although this article designates low income seniors it is directed at all populations.
The main reason we say low income seniors is that they are more suseptable to catching
the COVID-19 virus and are at the greatest risk of death from the infection.

In August 2020 public health officials said most of the deaths occurred in long-term care facilities. Even though the death toll is higher it seems the cases of infection seem to be slowing. Over 9,000 deaths are a lot, but compared to the USA with over 200,000 deaths it seems much smaller. Never the less even one death is too many.
This article will be updated continuously during 2021 to show the full Global, USA, and Canadian statistics on COVID-19.
