Summary Translation: A new study finds the proportion of Canadian COVID-19 deaths that have occurred in long-term care facilities is about twice the average of rates from other developed countries. The analysis released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information provides a damning snapshot of senior care as of May 25, when long-term care residents made up 81 per cent of all reported COVID-19 deaths in the country compared to an average of 42 per cent among all countries studied. The contrast in long-term care deaths is even more stark between provinces and territories, says the report, which notes long-term care deaths represented more than 70 per cent of all COVID-19 deaths in Quebec, Ontario and Alberta and 97 per cent of all deaths in Nova Scotia. Alberta has experienced among the highest number of COVID-19 deaths at long-term care facilities compared to other provinces, according to the latest analysis from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).
