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 - Oct 21, 2021 CANADA - 1,690,868 Total Cases, 28,651 Deaths, 1,632,983 Recovered USA - 46,103,082 Total Cases, 751,978 Deaths, 35,818,078 Recovered GLOBAL - 243,075,611 Total Cases, 4,941,538 Deaths, over 220,277,964 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.
