Description / Summary

Existing research has provided evidence that people with pre-existing chronic conditions or compromised immune systems are at higher risk of dying of COVID-19, especially among those over the age of 80.

Statistics Canada is releasing a study today that confirms that the majority of Canadians who died of COVID-19 had at least one other cause, condition or complication (comorbidities) reported on the medical certificate of death.
