Data from the Canadian Agency of Statistics revealed a significant decline in the rate of crimes reported to police in the country over the last year when the Coronavirus (known also as COVID-19) hit fiercely.
The data showed that the pandemic and its restrictions led to reducing the rates of crimes by at least 8%.
Serious crimes lowered within the two last years from 79.8% in 2019 to 73.4% in 2020.
The difference means a decrease in crimes throughout the two years in a row.
Figures of the statistics agency showed that the rate of crime filed with police is 5301 cases for every 100 thousand people in Canada.
It is worth noting the federal agency for statistics in Canada defines the rate of crimes lodges with the security agencies according to the rate of crimes and the indicator of the seriousness of crimes in all parts of the country.
On the other hand, data collected last Monday by both US Jones Hopkins University and Bloomberg, a US news agency, affirmed that about 44.9 million doses of the anti-corona vaccines were distributed in Canada.
The medical crews vaccinate more than 435 thousand people are vaccinated every day since the inception of the campaign of vaccination before 30 weeks.
Some 1.43 million Canadians contracted the deadly virus of COVID-19 and 26 thousand people died of the virus within a year and 25 weeks when the first infarction was detected in the country.
However, Michael Rayan, Executive- Director of Emergency Program of the World Health Organization (WHO), urged governments across the world to be more cautious ahead of lifting restrictions linked to COVID-19.
Rayan advised leaders of the nations to study the health situation thoroughly before opening the economies again.
Rayan told the “ Telegraph”, a UK daily newspaper, that allowing of infecting of more people represents an ethical void and stupidity, pointing out that infections increase even in countries where most of the population was vaccinated against the COVID-19.
