Death rate for influenza and pneumonia in Canada 2000-2017

Death rate for influenza and pneumonia in Canada from 2000 to 2017 (per 100,000 population)

by John Elflein, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Death rate for influenza and pneumonia in Canada 2000-2017 In 2017, there were around 20 deaths from influenza and pneumonia per 100,000 population, a slight increase from previous years. Influenza, more commonly known as the flu, is a highly contagious viral infection and frequent cause of pneumonia. Pneumonia is a more serious infection of the lungs and is particularly deadly among young children, the elderly, and those with certain chronic conditions.

There exist vaccines for both influenza and pneumonia, and although effectiveness varies, vaccination remains one of the best ways to prevent these illnesses. Nevertheless, only around 33 percent of Canadians received an influenza vaccination in the past year as of 2017. The most common reason Canadian adults received the influenza vaccination was that if they are not immunized, they can transmit the disease to others.

Pneumonia hospitalization

Pneumonia is among the leading diagnoses for inpatient hospitalizations in Canada. From 2016 to 2017, there were almost 68,000 inpatient hospitalizations for pneumonia. This was around 2.2 percent of all inpatient hospitalizations during that time. The average length of stay for inpatient hospitalization for pneumonia is around 6.7 days.
