Four more people have died from coronavirus in BC, and 25 new cases have been identified in the province, health officials said on Tuesday. During the press conference, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said the total number of recorded cases in the province now sits at 1 291, and the total number of deaths now sits at 43. Break down by health region, Henry says there are 603 cases in Vancouver Coastal Health, 458 in Fraser Health, 79 on Vancouver Island, 128 in Interior Health, and 23 in Northern Health. The number of long-term care homes in the province with patients or members of staff who have test positive remains at 21. And out of the total number of cases, 138 people are in hospital, with 66 of those in intensive care; 805 people have fully recovered and are out of isolation.

The opioid crisis is growing in Canada, driven by both illegal and prescription opioids. In 2016, there were 2861 apparent opioid-related deaths * in Canada, which is equivalent to eight people dying each day, 1 and is greater than the average number of Canadians killed daily in motor vehicle collisions in 2015. 2 However, this statistic represents just the tip of the iceberg; on average, 16 Canadians were hospitalized each day due to opioid-related poisonings in Canada in 2016. 3 This is not a problem restricted to people who use illegal or street drugs; rather, this is a national public health crisis that affects people in communities across Canada, across all ages and across all socioeconomic groups.

1. Introduction

Misuse of opioids from both divert prescriptions and illicitly manufactured sources is well-document and rising phenomenon in North America, and numerous studies report increasing opioid-related deaths in both Canada and the United States. Fentanyl, synthetic opioid 50-100 times more potent than morphine with significantly cheaper production costs than heroin, has come under considerable scrutiny as a prominent contributor to the recent surge in overdose deaths seen across North America. British Columbia has historically been the Canadian province with the highest rates of opioid use and opioid-related deaths. In BC, total illicit drug overdose deaths increased from 269 in 2012 to 931 in 2016. Furthermore, recent studies and anecdotal reports suggest that many people who use drugs are unaware that their opioid source may be contaminated with fentanyl, either because drugs are intentionally mislabeled as different substances or because fentanyl may be surreptitiously assimilated into the primary drug of consumption. An overall escalation in opioid-related unintentional deaths has led to a public health emergency being declared in BC by the Provincial Health Officer. While the relationship between illicit fentanyl and fentanyl-related 1 OD deaths has been well established in certain American reports, Canadian data is limit. Although there have been studies suggesting that fentanyl use and fentanyl-related deaths are both increasing across Canada, there are currently no studies examining possible association between the prevalence of illicit fentanyl on the black market and either the overall rate of OD deaths or of fentanyl-detect 2 OD deaths. Though there is considerable data detailing past association between non-fentanyl opioids, such as heroin, and total OD deaths in BC, there is no data on the relationship with illicit drug seizure. The purpose of the current study is to examine the relationship between seized fentanyl samples and total as well as fentanyl-detect unintentional OD deaths in BC. Also examine the relationship between seized heroin and total unintentional OD deaths in the province.


Results

The opioid crisis has affected every region of the country, although some jurisdictions have been impacted more than others. As of 2016, apparent opioid-Related deaths and hospitalization rates were highest in the western provinces of British Columbia and Alberta and in both Yukon and Northwest Territories. Nationally, most apparent opioid-Related deaths occur among males; individuals between 30 and 39 years of age account for the greatest proportion. Current evidence suggests regional age and sex differences with respect to health outcomes, especially when synthetic opioids are involve. However, differences between data collection methods and reporting requirements may impact interpretation and comparability of report data.


Discussion

Consumption levels of prescription opioids have decreased in the United States since 2012 and increased slightly in Canada since 2010. In agreement with findings from our present analyses, others have also demonstrated reductions in morphine milligram equivalents per capita since 2010 and opioid prescription rates per capita since 2012 in the United States. Slight variation in findings is attributable to selection of outcome metrics and analytical strategies. Similar decreases are also evident in Canada since 2012, although comprehensive time series are not available. Overdose deaths have increased in the United States since 2014 and in Ontario and British Columbia since 2015. Prior to changes in consumption levels of prescription opioids in the United States and Ontario, consumption levels of prescription opioids were positively correlated with overdose deaths. However, consumption levels of prescription opioids were negatively correlate with overdose deaths in the United States after 2012; as consumption levels of prescription opioids decrease, overdose deaths increase. Consumption levels of prescription opioids are no longer associated with overdose deaths in Ontario, while they were not associated with overdose deaths during pre-change or post-change periods in British Columbia. Overdose deaths have increased at a greater rate than would be expected in the absence of regulatory and environmental changes in the United States since 2014 and in Ontario and British Columbia since 2015. Our modeling predictions are corroborated by another examination of opioid-related deaths in Ontario from 2013 to 2016, where 39. 8 % of deaths were documented to have occurred among those without active opioid prescription. Almost identical findings were obtained from our present analyses, as 39. 2 % of overdose deaths were attributable to regulatory and environmental changes in Ontario in 2017. Decreases in consumption levels of prescription opioids reflect changes in opioid prescribing practices. Reductions in morphine milligram equivalents per capita in the United States highlighted above stem from reductions in opioid prescriptions and doses per opioid prescription. However, as the duration of opioid prescriptions has increased at the same time in the United States, it is probable that opioid therapy initiation is occurring less often, but those receiving opioids are likely to continue receiving them. Although comprehensive time series are not available for all of Canada, similar trends have been noted based on recent observations from select provinces, which indicate reductions in opioid prescriptions, as well as reductions in long-term opioid prescriptions and doses per opioid prescription for long-term prescriptions. Changes in correlations between consumption levels of prescription opioids and overdose deaths in the United States and Ontario likely stem from recent regulatory and environmental changes. Illicit opioids have often replaced prescription opioids as the substance of choice. Importantly, other illegal substances often include added fentanyl because of its availability and cheap price. Consistent with transitions in types of opioids, state adoption of prescription-monitoring programs intended to curtail inappropriate opioid prescribing has been shown to be associated with steadily increasing heroin overdose deaths in the United States.

Four more people have died due to COVID-19 in BC, Dr. Bonnie Henry said Tuesday. The province has a record 25 new cases but only in Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health, Henry say-none in Interior Health, Island Health and Northern Health. Three of the new deaths were in Vancouver Coastal Health and one was in Fraser Health. This brings BCs total fatalities to 43, one of whom was a health care worker. Henry says that all active cases, of which there are currently 443 in BC, are followed up daily if they are well enough to self-isolate at home. There are currently 138 people in hospital and 66 in the ICU. There are currently 4 549 empty hospital beds in BC, with overall capacity at 58. 1 per cent and 50. 9 in critical care or ICU beds. Henry says 805 people have recovered out of a total 1 291 case, for a rate of 62 per cent. BC has 21 care facilities with outbreaks, with 132 cases among residents and 81 among staff. Health Minister Adrian Dix said 56 doctors and 880 nurses and care aides have come back out of retirement.

Science

This winter, 463 wolves died in British Columbia. Their deaths were not due to freak accident or natural disaster, but a government-sponsor cull meant to save endangered mountain caribou. Killing wolves is often controversial, and in this case their deaths may have been in vain: group of scientists say the decision to cull wolves rests on statistical error. In spring of 2019, British Columbia's government was embroiled in a series of high-profile community-feedback sessions concerning conservation of mountain caribou. Endanger ungulates depend on old forests targeted for logging that also happen to grow on top of highly covet oil-and-gas deposits. Sessions were heat, to say least. Amid a clash between industry advocates and conservationists, group of researchers led by Robert Serrouya, caribou biologist at the University of Alberta, published a paper that offers practical solution: Killing wolves, which are predators of caribou, and penning pregnant caribou could help save a vanishing population. Studying makes considerable splash in the Canadian media. It was quite a story, said Chris Darimont, Conservation scientist at University of Victoria, who worked on the new paper. It was a pretty desperate time for caribou, and people from policy makers to the public were very interested in the prospect of solution. In September, government came to a decision. It would not designate any new caribou-protection areas for deep-snow caribou. This spelled disaster for caribou, which have experienced one of the steepest population declines of any caribou population in the world, as their forest habitat has been razed by clear-cutting or fragment by roads. Deep-snow caribou once roamed as far south as the Montanas Bitterroot Mountains, but almost all populations had disappeared from the United States by 1980. By early 2000s in Canada, deep-snow caribou had lost as much as 45 percent of their population in just 27 years. But the government had an alternate plan: new wolf-cull program that cite Serrouyas study as proof of why killing wolves works. Now a new group of scientists has reassess statistical findings of that paper. Their rebuttal, published today in Biodiversity and Conservation, shows that simple oversight doomed those 463 wolves. It all starts with statistics, says Viktoria Wagner, plant ecologist and statistician at University of Alberta and author of rebuttal. When Wagner first saw Serrouyas paper share on Twitter, results seemed excitinga. Rare glimmer of hope for besieged caribou. But when she examined its findings more closely, she noticed that the study considered only 12 populations, surprisingly low sample size. When she digs deeper, she finds even more irregularities. In wildlife ecology, researchers rely on models that can potentially explain how the world worksfor. Example, why the population of caribou could increase or decrease in give year. The 2019 paper includes models examining how solutions such as killing wolves and penning pregnant caribou could stabilize or increase populations.

Gains in child survival have long served as an important proxy measure for improvements in overall population health and Development 1 2. Global progress in reducing child deaths has been heralded as one of the greatest success stories of global health 3. The annual global number of deaths of children under 5 years of age has declined from 19. 6 million in 1950 to 5. 4 million in 2017. Nevertheless, these advances in child survival have been far from universally achieve, particularly in low-and middle-income countries 4. Previous subnational child mortality assessments at first or second administrative level indicate that extensive geographical inequalities persist 5 6 7. Progress in child survival also diverge across age groups 4. Global reductions in mortality rates of children under 5that is, under-5 mortality rate among post-neonatal age groups are greater than those for mortality of neonates 4 8. It is relatively unclear how these age patterns are shifting at more local scale, posing challenges to ensuring child survival. To pursue the ambitious Sustainable Development Goal of United Nations 9 to end preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 by 2030, it is vital for decision-makers at all levels to better understand where, and at what age, child survival remains most tenuous.
