The World Health Organization (WHO) refers to symptoms lasting for weeks or months after a COVID-19 infection as post COVID-19 condition. Some studies have reported later symptoms in patients with a severe COVID-19 infection. For example, those who were hospitalized or needed intensive care during recovery. However, post COVID-19 condition may also occur for people with mild or asymptomatic infection who were asked to isolate at home during the infectious phase.

People infected with COVID-19 can shed the virus through their stool, even if they don't have any symptoms. Testing a community's sewage (wastewater) can tell us if COVID-19 is increasing or decreasing in that community. Our scientists have developed a pan-Canadian wastewater network to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in Canada. This is in collaboration with provincial, territorial and municipal governments and academia across Canada.

The file comprises COVID-19 case counts, population, demographic and air pollution data by health region. The data were employed in a national ecological study of the association between air pollution and incidence of COVID-19. Data were obtained from the COVID-19 Canada Open Data portal, the Canadian Urban Environmental Health Research Consortium (CANUE), Statistics Canada and Google COVID-19 Community Mobility Reports. The study found that there was a positive association between COVID-19 incidence and long-term exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5).
