Study: Contributing causes, conditions and complications involved in COVID-19 deaths in Canada
February 17, 2021
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.
