"COVID-19 FOR LOW INCOME SENIORS"




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 susceptible to catching
the COVID-19 virus and are at the greatest risk of death from the infection.
COVID-19 STATS for - Sep 16, 2021
CANADA - 1,560,715 Total Cases, 27,310 Deaths, 1,491,106 Recovered
USA - 42,497,348 Total Cases, 685,242 Deaths, 32,272,641 Recovered
GLOBAL - 227,471,677 Total Cases, 4,677,080 Deaths, over 227,471,677 Recovered

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 HAS BEEN ONE YEAR AND THE DEATH TOLL HAS GONE FROM 9,000 TO 26,632.

This article will be updated continuously during 2021 to show the full Global, USA, and Canadian statistics on COVID-19.

In the meantime let us remind everyone to keep their distance of 6 feet and to wear a protective face covering.

LET US NOT FORGET TO GIVE THANKS TO ALL THE HEALTH CARE WORKERS and STAFF AT
ALL FACILITIES THAT STAY ON THE JOB TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE FOOD AND MEDICATIONS.
