They found that those infected with the Alpha variant, which drove the province’s third wave in the early spring, or the Beta or Gamma variants were 52 per cent more likely to be hospitalized, 89 per cent more likely to need intensive care and 51 per cent more likely to die of the infection than those who caught the early 2020 version of the virus.
Among Delta cases, they found a 108 per cent increased risk for hospitalization, 235 per cent increased risk for ICU admission and 133 per cent increased risk for death compared to the original virus strain.

Who profited from there being so many false negatives?
Who would want all those people spreading the virus because they were told they didn't have it?
