Canada pandemic growth Soaring as vaccines build hope



News from across Canada on the pandemic front is sobering while there are more hopeful messages from companies that will sell Canada vaccines.

First, the Good News

Canada has arrangements with Pfizer, Moderna, Oxford-AstraZeneca, as well as Johnson and Johnson.

 Johnson & Johnson (J&J), began the process today of applying for emergency approval of its vaccine from Health Canada to which early testing data was sent from J&J’s experimental one-dose vaccine for preventing COVID-19.  (The pharmaceutical giant will also be testing the efficacy of a two-dose treatment.)

This article will share news from notable women, Canada’s Health Minister Patty Hajdu; and from Dr. Theresa Tam. Additionally, new  statistical data is available from the University of Washington and from the Civil Society Partners for Global Solidarity against COVID-19 who have prepared some graphs for today.

This J&J data report was part of a set of rolling review submissions in a process of supplying data immediately it becomes available as a transparent window to the vaccine testing.

“It prevents a document and data overload when all testing has been done,” say officials at Johnson and Johnson.

Johnson & Johnson’s  statement today claimed that rolling submission were approved owing to positive results from laboratory testing that indicated a robust immune response in test subjects receiving the vaccine.

The company has said it will provide its vaccine on a not-for-profit basis throughout the pandemic emergency.

“Laboratories around the world are in a race to produce a COVID-19 vaccine. While the finish line is now in sight for Pfizer and BioNTech, the World Health Organization (WHO) lists 202 vaccine candidates, 47 of which are in human trials.

“Canada has not put all its eggs in one basket in its plan to protect Canadians from the novel coronavirus. In addition to Pfizer and BioNTech, it has signed six other contracts: Moderna, Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Novavax, AstraZeneca and Medicago. Canada recently announced it had reserved 56 million additional doses of vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech, on top of the 20 million doses it had already purchased, bringing its order to 76 million.”

(Citing Aïssatou Aïcha Sow, Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) writing “Pfizer may be the frontrunner, but Canada hedged its bets” for The RINJ Foundation Conversation.

And now the very bad news—Canadians are slacking off mitigation efforts hence TENS OF THOUSANDS more WILL DIE By February.

There are three gruesome news items today:

Dr. Theresa Tam issues 1 December Guidance for Families as COVID-19 cases hit new daily highs.

“It is safest for all of us to limit errands and outings to just the essentials,” says Canda’s top doctor.

“Limit in-person activities to just our existing household members and keep up with key prevention practices: stay home if you have symptoms, practise physical distancing and frequent handwashingwear a face mask in indoor public places, and avoid the 3Cs, crowded places, closed spaces and close contact situations, whenever you can.”

“Read my backgrounder,” says Dr. Tam, “to access more COVID-19 Information and Resources on ways to reduce the risks and protect yourself and others.”

Below: Extensive Estimates using data from multiple sources.

Beta experimental estimates for Canada. Reported + unreported mild + asymptomatic COVID-19 infections.

The total actual number of infections in Canada including all the untested, unreported, asymptomatic infections is likely greater than 21,794,742 (56.25% of the population) including mild and asymptomatic cases. That would mean the estimated inferred average Infection Fatality Rate:
(IFR) is likely around 0.25%

Canadian COVID-19 deaths to 2022-06-27 are estimated to be 54,487 Using estimated IFR of 0.25% which is far below global average IFR.

54,487 (0.25% IFR) is the CSPaC estimated number of Canadian COVID-19 deaths (based on the inferred IFR) including those deaths unreported as COVID-19). The IHME estimates excess deaths in Canada to reach much higher than CSPaC estimates.

See The Lancet estimate of excess mortality from COVID-19 (Download PDF) in 191 countries/territories and 252 subnational units of select countries, from 1 January 2 0 2 0, to 31 December 2 0 2 1.

54442 Is the CSPaC estimated number of Canadian COVID-19 deaths based on a modified universal algorithm which factors more sophisticated public health infrastructure and also fewer available urgent care beds and facilities which is a problem in much of Canada in an emergency measures context.

The closeness of the two numbers derived from unique data and methods suggests their high probability. The blended data of three projections from three different biostatistician labs also confirms the estimates +/- .01%.

It is safe to say that Canadians have endured the grief of losing 54442 family members. Every number has a face. May their memory be forever a blessing to their families and friends.

Canada's advanced public health standards.

Canada and the USA both have a significantly lower than global average Infection Fatality Rate. (influenza has an IFR of .1% or 6 per 100k (2019)).

*Reported by India but understated.

Note: India's reported death sum and cured data are widely seen among epidemiologists and biostatisticians as unreliable. For example, 3,045,063 is CSPAC estimated sum of deaths while India reports 525,020, creating the largest discepency in the world. India might only report hospital tested cases. Sources among hundreds of nurses and other medical practitioners provide a picture that in summary concludes most cases never present in a hospital especially in northern provinces where health care is less available and utilization is low anyway because of poverty, hence most people die at home in India. This theory could explain discrepancies between reported data and algorithmic estimates.
