According to CTV as of Nov. 15:

>10,947 Canadians had died from COVID-19
>10,781 were in long-term care homes

This is utterly astounding.

I've been paying close attention to the figures and had no idea the number of deaths outside long-term care homes was so low.

This is not to diminish the deaths in long-term care homes, in any way.

But, I feel that the media / health officials / politicians have utterly failed to even remotely effectively communicate the scale of the problem inside care homes vs outside care homes.


The figures are from CTV National News broadcast on November 15th.

Globe and Mail had a piece this Friday that had data from August 21, which is obviously older, but had a similar ratio.
