Local COVID-19 numbers steady as provincial cases rise

Local COVID-19 numbers steady as provincial cases rise”

One death is also being reported. "COVID-19 does not like to be in a steady state", he said.

Ontario's COVID-19 single-day case numbers jumped to 313 cases Monday, the highest since early June as the provincial Legislature resumed sitting.

"Fifteen PHUs have no new cases", she said on Twitter Monday.

Elliott said the province is not in a second wave yet but warned a fall surge could be worse than the first given complications such as flu season.

The vast majority of the new cases are in three regions on the province, the Greater Toronto Area, the Peel Region, and the Ottawa area.

Epidemiologists look at the reproductive number of COVID-19, which indicates how many other people an infected person will pass the virus onto, on average.

Ford addressed a question on the deficit and paying down the province's debt from the pandemic - saying efforts to cut red tape and regulations, as well as ensuring hydro rates are fair, will help create the environment for businesses to generate jobs - and said, in response to another inquiry, that no other infrastructure project is more important to the people of Ontario, especially in rural communities, than broadband internet.

"We're watching not just the numbers but the speed of ramp up and how widespread the cases are", Tam said in an interview with CBC Radio's The Current.

"We'd still like it lower but let's see how it goes over the course of the week", Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Williams told CP24 after announcing Tuesday's number live on the air. But their jobs become more hard if people aren't doing their part to minimize their numbers of contacts and exposures should a case occur.

"Yes, this is concerning".

"We do not want to do that", she said.

"If we can delay the gratification of the need for intense socializing for several months, our reward will be less suffering, less death and a more open society".

In the press release, Dale reminded Ontarians that it is the "personal responsibility" of everyone to "strictly adhere to the public health measures".

He says Ontario residents must practise physical distancing, wear masks when required, and neither host nor attend unsafe gatherings and parties.

"We are all in this together and our collective success depends on each of us making the right choices. Ultimately, skipping a dinner party or a wedding that isn't safe is a very small sacrifice to make to protect our loved ones and people who are particularly vulnerable to the threat of COVID-19", Dale said.
