Dotted black line is totals deaths per week all causes for 2020.  Data is only available for up to about the 24th week, late June where the black line drops below all the rest.

Note the peak of the 2020 deaths is late April, the peak of the Covid-19 outbreak.  Note also the peak isn’t any higher than that for 2018 that occurred in mid January of that year.  Same amount of deaths each year but occurring at different times.  2018 seasonal flu deaths were 8,500 while Covid-19 deaths for 2020 are 9,200.

Here’s just the 45 to 64 year group.  The black 2020 weekly death line is inseparable from those for the last six years.

The age groups from 0-44 are the same,  in the graph below.

Covid-19’s effect on the population of Canada has not been substantially different than that of the common annual seasonal respiratory viruses, what is called “seasonal flu”.  Covid-19 is, in fact, nothing more than a new seasonal respiratory virus and like all new flu viruses and corona virus colds, will probably persist in the population and create season outbreaks for decades just as H1N1 flu from 2009 and H3N2 flu from 1968 (Hong Kong flu) still does.  H1N1 was the dominant flu strain in Canada this past year in December and January.  I believe my whole family got it in January as well as many other people I know.

The final word in all this, in my opinion, is that governments all over the world have been mistakenly characterizing Covid-19 as a special and very serious health threat when the death rate data and age profile data reveal it to be normal and routine, almost expected.

The total deaths comparison graph  for just the province of Ontario, the largest province and home to the largest city in Canada where I live makes this whole Covid-19 outbreak look even more ordinary.

The peak deaths from Covid-19 in early April, week 15, are no greater than that for week 1 in January when, as I mentioned, H1N1 was making a return and having the exact same effect, death rate and death profile, as Covid-19 would have in April.  If you can grasp all this I don’t think there’s anything else you need to know, or can know, about the threat of Covid-19 in our society today.  It’s much the same picture everywhere in the world because Covid-19, while it might be a new virus, isn’t a new kind of virus.
