Some racialized populations had higher COVID mortality rates: Statistics Canada – National

0

A new Statistics Canada study has found that some racialized populations in Canada had significantly higher mortality rates from COVID-19.

The analysis found that Black people had the highest mortality rate, more than two times higher than non-racialized people.

South-Asians and Chinese people also had higher mortality rates than non-racialized people.

The study also found a person’s socioeconomic situation played a role in COVID-19 deaths.

People in low income, overcrowded housing and apartments had higher odds of dying from COVID-19.

The study estimated COVID-19 mortality rates in Canada in 2020 and compared it with newly released census data from 2016.
