Yesterday, Ontario health officials projected between 3,000 to 15,000 could die from the coronavirus in the province.

Why is there such a focus on the fatalities and fatality rate? How many deaths are we expected to accept? Is the panic justified?

True North’s Sam Eskenasi analyzes the latest coronavirus stats.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
