The Canadian province of Ontario has recorded a record daily coronavirus cases of 3,519 new infections, in addition to 89 other deaths of people with the disease – the deadliest day so far of the entire epidemic in Canada’s main province..
“This week has been important for us,” said chief medical officer for health in Ontario, Dr. David Williams, noting that today represents the largest number of cases the province has seen since the start of the epidemic, in addition to deaths..
He explained that the hope is that from here the numbers may start to decline, although he expressed his concerns that the community transmission is at its worst and that the numbers may swell to 4,000 cases per day..
Williams said hospitals were seeing record numbers of patients admitted to the ICU “much higher” than county models had expected..
In light of the new developments, the government of the provincial government chief, Doug Ford, decided to continue studying online in elementary and middle schools until at least January 25 instead of returning to school next Monday amid a rise in HIV cases among school-age children..
