Pandemic Influenza Plan 2007

Arrow BulletChapter 14: Natural Death Surge Planning

Pandemic influenza is expected to result in excess deaths in the Region of Peel. Modeling used by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care for a pandemic of mild to moderate severity suggests that the Region of Peel can expect, over the duration of the pandemic, between 467 and 1,730 deaths due to influenza and its complications. The availability of vaccines and antiviral drugs could significantly reduce the expected number of deaths. A severe pandemic, however, could be associated with much higher mortality rates. If many deaths occur in a short-time frame, they could overwhelm current fatality management systems.
