Statistics Canada has released the numbers for the influenza season and this is what you need to know.
1:30 The flu season is underway and according to Statistics Canada, it is the most intense period of the year for influenza outbreaks, with more than a third of the population infected.
The average number of cases reported in the month of January was more than 10,000, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The last time the flu season peaked was in October, when more than 2,600 people died from the disease.
2:20 The numbers show that Canada has the highest number of deaths per capita in the world, and the number of Canadians who have died from influenza-related illnesses has grown by more than 30 per cent over the last three years.
The most recent numbers are available for January, but the first few weeks of February will have a much bigger impact on the numbers.
There are two categories of deaths, and they are listed in the chart below.
First, there are deaths related to the flu.
These include cases and deaths from pneumonia, influenza-associated pneumonia, and influenza-induced deaths.
2,400,000: The number of people who died from flu-related complications between October 1, 2016, and January 1, 2018.
The second category of deaths are deaths from other causes.
These deaths include deaths from cardiac and pulmonary diseases, injuries to the heart, or accidents.
The latest data for Canada comes from the Centre for Disease Dynamics and Prevention, which publishes monthly influenza and coronavirus death counts.
The data from this agency is compiled by compiling death certificates from Canada’s health care system, which has been updated every few years.
A death certificate is the medical record of the deceased.
It is a form of medical record that allows people to report their deaths to authorities.
Data on deaths from flu has been collected by Health Canada since 2004, when it began tracking deaths from the flu in its database.
This data was updated every year and included in the Centers’ influenza update for 2017.
2.4: The rate at which deaths related in the flu are reported by health care providers.
In 2018, the rates of reporting deaths related with influenza and other coronaviruses were about twice as high as in 2017, according the CDC.
In the past, people often didn’t get the full information they need from health care and did not report the right details.
In 2017, about 50 per cent of health care facilities in Canada reported no deaths, according data from Statistics Canada.
This is the highest percentage of health facilities that reported no flu deaths in the past 10 years.
2-4: In the last 10 years, the number and types of deaths that have been reported by Canada’s healthcare systems have increased significantly.
From January 1 to December 31, 2017, the total number of influenza-specific deaths reported in Canada increased by more the number reported in each of the three previous years.
In 2019, the rate of influenza deaths in Canada rose by 25 per cent compared to the same period in 2017.
The rate of flu-associated deaths in this time period increased by 31 per cent, according statistics from the CDC and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
The highest rates of deaths in these years were reported in Newfoundland and Labrador, British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and New Brunswick.
In Alberta, for example, there were 6,521 deaths associated with the flu, which was the most among all provinces.
4:25: The percentage of deaths reported to health care workers who received flu shots and the type of influenza virus that caused them.
From October 1 to November 30, 2018, there was a 35 per cent increase in the number in the healthcare system of health workers reporting flu-specific death reports.
This was a significant increase for people who work in the health care sector, which accounts for about a third (33 per cent) of Canada’s population.
5:05: The average time between flu-like symptoms and a flu shot being administered.
The number was 2.5 hours in 2017 and 3.5 in 2018.
4.4 years: The duration of the flu pandemic in Canada.
From July 1 to August 31, 2018 the average duration of flu seasons in Canada was just under four years.
This period was the longest on record for a pandemic, according StatsCan.
It was also the shortest since 2006, when the pandemic lasted for less than a month.
2 years: Average length of flu season in Canada from July 1, 2017 to September 30, 2019.
2 days: Average time between symptoms and flu shot.
This number was 1.2 hours in 2016 and 1.7 in 2017 in Canada, according Health Canada.
4 days: The period during which a person is likely to be contagious from a flu-virus infection.
From December 1 to January 31, 2019, this was the third longest period on record. From
