Age distribution of Canadian COVID-19 cases as of November 29, 2020

As of November 29, 2020, adults between the ages of 20 and 29 accounted for the highest percentage of all COVID-19 cases in Canada, at 18.7 percent of cases.

Which groups of people are at higher risk?

Canada appears to have its COVID-19 outbreak under control, but the risk of infection remains particularly high for older people, especially those with pre-existing medical conditions. It is not surprising, therefore, that adults aged 55 years and older are more concerned about contracting the disease than younger age groups. During these challenging times, it is important to protect older people living alone and those in care facilities. Groups should not be discriminated against because of age, and all communities need to be supported.

Protecting yourself and others from the coronavirus

Many steps can be taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Standard recommendations include washing your hands frequently, regularly cleaning surfaces, and staying away from large gatherings. Governments and health institutes have advised people to avoid nonessential travel and to limit contact with people at higher risk, such as older adults. However, increased social isolation can lead to further problems. Therefore, try to move appointments with friends and relatives online. High-risk groups should also consider stockpiling critical prescription medicines.
