With the virus still on the rise, the CBC is facing a new problem: the coverage of coronaviruses has gotten worse.
Here’s what you need to know.
CBC reporter Adam Macdonald wrote an op-ed for the New York Times on Monday, where he outlined what he called the “unprecedented” rise in coronaviral cases and deaths in Canada.
The paper says the numbers show “that the global spread of the virus is becoming more dangerous for Canadians.”
In the lead-up to the pandemic, the average number of cases was 4,097 per year.
Since the beginning of the pandemics, the number has more than doubled, jumping from 5,903 cases per year in early 2015 to 17,737 per year, according to data from the Canadian Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.
According to Macdonald, that’s a whopping jump of more than 100,000 per year over the previous five years.
The paper notes that “there’s a big difference between the number of new coronavirence cases in a given year and the number that are actually detected and reported by health authorities.”
Macdonald argues that it’s because Canada has more people in hospitals and the spread of coronaviirus in Canada has been so much greater.
“When the pandems were starting, the first coronavids cases were detected in Canada in the winter of 2016, which was when the virus was spreading rapidly across Canada,” Macdonald said.
“In that time period, we’ve seen more than double the number [of cases] in Canada than we did in the first few years of the epidemic.”
The paper also notes that more than 90 per cent of cases are not reported, and that the number is not being recorded by health services.CBC reporter Andrew MacDougall tweeted that “the numbers are really bad, and not just because of the spread, but also because the coronaviuses are catching people off guard.”
In a statement, the Canadian Public Health Association said the number shows “the global spread is becoming much more dangerous.”
“The pandemists have made it much harder for people to catch the virus, which has resulted in a number of infections in vulnerable populations, including the elderly and the frail,” the association wrote.
“The numbers we’re seeing indicate that coronavirotis can spread quickly and easily in the community, and the health care system is catching on.
But while the global pandemic has already seen the deaths of more people than in any other recent outbreak, Canada is still at risk from the pandemaker’s virus.”
The association also said that coronovirus cases are increasing at a faster rate in the U.S. than in Canada, which is the second highest-incidence country in the world.
“This is a big problem because the numbers are actually increasing in both the U,S.
and Canada,” said the association’s deputy president, Mark Sankofsky.
“There’s a lot of variation across the U.,S.
that we’re not seeing in the Canadian numbers.”
The Canadian Public Hospital Association (CPHA), a trade group for public health institutions in the country, echoed Sankoff’s sentiment, saying that the increase in coronoviruses in Canada “has been accompanied by an overall increase in mortality and morbidity.”
“With the advent of the Ebola pandemic and the rise in cases, the health system has responded in kind, with increased staffing levels, enhanced testing protocols and even expanded testing,” the group wrote in a statement.
“We have seen this in our hospital system as well, with staff training on detecting and managing the virus and in how to prevent the spread,” CPHA added.
According a CBC News analysis, Canada ranks 27th out of 39 nations in terms of coronoviral deaths per 100,00 people, a figure that has dropped from 17th in 2012 to 21st in 2014.
The CBC’s numbers also show that the average hospital stay is now three days, which compares with a record of about five days in the early 1980s.
The number of coronivirus infections has also fallen from an all-time high of about 13,000 infections per year at the start of the outbreak in 2015 to about 7,500 per year today, the paper notes.
But while the number per person is dropping, the rate of infections is not, according the CPHA.
The report says that this is partly due to the coronvirus being so much more easily transmitted, but that also shows that it is “a public health emergency in Canada.”
“There’s no doubt that coronvirotic disease is a public health issue,” the CPAA said.
“Public health authorities in Canada are making significant efforts to improve public health surveillance and reporting of all cases of coronvívees and other respiratory and circulatory diseases, and to improve the response to this epidemic and its aftermath.”
The CPHA noted that the new pandemic “is the first time
