Economic, Social and Health Impacts of the Pandemic on Vulnerable Groups in the United-States, Canada and Mexico

March 31, 2022

Despite numerous declarations that the coronavirus pandemic is finally “over”, illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths continue. In early June of 2023, the USA was reporting 103,436,829 cases of COVID-19, with 1,131,439 deaths in the United States¹ (WHO, 2023). In Canada, the government reported a total case count of 4,684,456 and 52,751 deaths as of June 2023 (Government of Canada, 2023). In Mexico, the number of lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 is 7,621,062 (WHO, 2023b), though we believe this is a significant undercount (see Latapi and Cruz, 2023).
