Many Canadians Wonder: Is The COVID-19 Pandemic Over?

COVID-19 has been a challenge that hit the world quite harshly and was a very annoying and continuous problem that kept on giving the scientific and federal leaders a lot of confusion and extra work.

The COVID-19 virus has had many variants and sub-variants roaming worldwide and spreading quickly. Many people predicted that there would be another pandemic due to the variants getting hundreds, if not thousands, of people sick. 

Although in the fall of the year 2022, the virus everyone was struggling with was the influenza virus, which was spreading among the citizens so quickly and the number of sick raised so high it concerned some of the schools in Manitoba.

Recently, the data released by Manitoba Province shows that the number of COVID-19 victims and deaths has decreased. However, the influenza risk rate and the number of sick people in the province lead to a very thought-provoking question: is the pandemic considered over?

Scientists and doctors wouldn’t call the pandemic “over” because there is still a high risk of elderly people being harmed by the COVID-19 virus. However, according to the province’s newly released data, “COVID-19 activity in week five decreased from the previous week. Most indicators, including COVID-19-associated hospital admissions in week five, decreased compared to the previous week. Overall, laboratory detection continues to decrease from the fall of 2022,” said the province in their weekly statistics. Hopefully, this pandemic will cool down, and people struggling with it will recover so they can live normally.
