COVID-19 Graphs & Facts

Here are the graphs I posted over the past few days comparing COVID hospitalization rates, recovery rates and deaths by age to a typical flu season. Additionally, with a graph from Ontario Public health showing lab confirmed flu cases from 2013 through 2018 and how the rate of infections coincide with our winter flu season (week 1 in the graph is the first week of January, as the chart begins September and ends in Aug) .

COVID-19 is a respiratory virus like many others, while some people refuse to accept the evidence, it shares many similarities in transmission and symptoms to every other respiratory virus that we face every season. It makes me think of the old adage,If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.

Did lock downs bring the COVID cases down, or did they come down precipitously as in every other and which occur naturally. Read the data and make your own decisions
