So far, government data has shown that around 82.7% of the new cases are coming among unvaccinated individuals and 6.4% of the new cases are among fully vaccinated. Percentage of new cases among fully vaccinated has increased from 5.4% to 6.4% since our update 2 weeks ago.
As per the recent statement of Dr. Theresa Tam’s (Chief Public Health Officer of Canada) on November 5.
“Nationally, COVID-19 disease activity is continuing to decline, with an average of 2,231 new cases reported daily during the latest 7 day period (Oct 29-Nov 4), a decrease of 5% compared to the previous week. Hospitalisation and critical care admission trends, primarily involving unvaccinated people, are decreasing nationally but remain elevated. The latest provincial and territorial data show that an average of 1,934 people with COVID-19 were being treated in Canadian hospitals each day during the most recent 7-day period (Oct 29-Nov 4), which is 8% lower than last week. This includes, on average, 595 people who were being treated in intensive care units (ICU), 8% less than last week and an average of 27 deaths were reported daily (Oct 29-Nov 4). Together with prolonged hospital stays these still elevated numbers continue to place a heavy strain on local healthcare resources, particularly where infection rates are high and vaccination rates are low.”
