TORONTO — New modelling shows Ontario appears to be moving away from the worst-case scenario during the second wave of COVID-19.
New projections suggested the growth of the pandemic is slowing even though community spread of the virus continues.
Health officials said continuing to adopt targeted measures that account for regional variations will be important in trying to contain the spread of the virus.
Before the projections were released, Premier Doug Ford described the latest projections as “good news” but stressed the need for a “surgical approach” to deal with COVID-19 hot spots.
Meanwhile, Ontario reported 934 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday and 10 new deaths due to the coronavirus.
Health Minister Christine Elliott said 420 of the new cases are in Toronto, while 169 are in Peel Region, 95 are in York Region and 62 are in Ottawa.
The province also reported 99 new COVID-19 cases related to schools, including at least 55 among students.View link »
