Looking for stats about deaths in recent years for Canada and can't find any. Is there 0 deaths considering it's well below 1,000 cases a year for measles? Could someone point me in the right direction? Also is there any information on how many had serious complications such as pneumonia, etc?

One would think this would be an easy question to answer, but alas, no.  I spent 10 minutes on google and on phac in particular and got nowhere.

 

I know people died of measles in Canada during a large outbreak in 1989. That is the last I know of - but if others know otherwise, I am all ears.

There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

I could only find number of cases, but not deaths. Strange

If there was one death, you can be sure we will all be informed about it.
