The "daily bar charts" no longer represent true daily cases because many provinces and this website are not updated daily as of June 29th.

*Active = Total - Recoveries - Deaths. Total # of tests before March 31st may not be accurate as the numbers are collected from news releases and some provinces did not provide regular updates.

Definition of a recovered case varies by province. Active cases = Total cases - deaths - recovered.

*CFR is the preliminary case fatality rate. Note that some cases have not yet resolved, and the number of deaths may be undercounted. Since April 16th, Quebec started including deaths of untested patients that showed symptoms.

*Tests represents the total number of tests rather than # of unique people tested (except NL). As such, it is important to remember that an individual may have been tested more than once.

*There are discrepancies in hospitalization data for Alberta between what they report in their official news releases (shown here) and their dashboard.

Cases

Total cases include confirmed and probable cases as per national case definition. Infections that experience mild, limited or no symptoms often go unrecognized and hence, the total number of "true" cases might be substantially higher than confirmed cases. Studies are on-going to determine the amount of undocumented infections.

Deaths

In all provinces, except Quebec, death count includes deceased patients who had tested positive for COVID-19 and does not include deaths among non-laboratory confirmed cases. Since April 16th, Quebec includes deaths of untested patients that showed symptoms of COVID-19. Thus the total deaths due to COVID-19 may be undercounted.

Case Fatality Rate (CFR)

CFR is the proportion of deaths among diagnosed cases. As some cases have not yet resolved, the number of deaths and hence, the CFR, may be undercounted. The infection fatality rate (IFR) differs from CFR in that, the former aims to estimate the fatality rate among all those infected i.e. diagnosed cases and those with undocumented infection (asymptomatic or not tested).

Recovered

The definition of 'recovered' varies from province to province. in Ontario and Alberta, a patient is considered recovered if they are not currently hospitalized and are 14 days past symptom onset. In BC, cases have recovered when either two tests at least 24 hours apart come back negative, or at least 10 days have passed since onset of symptoms. In Quebec, a person is considered recovered according to the evaluation of the responsible health care professional.

Active

Active cases = Total cases - deaths - recovered

Hospitalized

Values represent the number of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 regardless of where in the hospital they are located, including patients in the ICU. Hospitalization numbers don't include some residents of long-term care facilities who have severe COVID-19 and are receiving treatment in their facility and not being transferred to hospital.
