Study struggles to explain why Quebec has high COVID-19 death toll but low excess death – CBC

Quebec premier says health measures helped reduce deaths in province

May 30, 2022

Researchers are having a hard time explaining why Quebec had the country’s highest official COVID-19 death toll despite a relatively low number of excess deaths between March 2020 and October 2021.

A new study released Monday by the Canadian Medical Association Journal tried to answer that question but came up short.

“I would say at this point it’s something we need to understand,” Kimberlyn McGrail, professor at University of British Columbia’s school of population and public health, said in an interview.

The study, titled Excess mortality, COVID-19 and health-care systems in Canada, says Quebec had 4,033 excess deaths between March 2020 and October 2021, but reported 11,470 COVID-19 fatalities — almost three times more.

It’s the biggest gap recorded in Canada during the pandemic. Excess deaths refers to the degree to which observed deaths exceed expected deaths based on modelling from previous years.
