Note that the increase in deaths is slower than the rise in cases. Measuring total cases is an inaccurate measure of COVID trends and risks. Total case counts include recoveries and deaths.
Governments do not include the number of recoveries in their daily briefings. Recoveries were not reported and recorded until mid-April 2020. Reporting of recovery numbers since then has been sporadic. Every so often, a province will catch up on unreported recoveries and make adjustments which result in a decrease in active case numbers.
