Ontario will be first Canadian government to release modelling projections on COVID19 Friday. Calling the situation “extremely serious, and a matter of life and death,” Premier Doug Ford is asking the province’s top doctors to release projections on where the province is headed with COVID-19.
“You deserve the same information I have. Our top doctors will provide an update on where Ontario was, where Ontario is and Ontario could be,” said Ford.
Ford didn’t rule out amending the current list of essential services in an effort to curb the spread of the virus. The Premier also announced Ford $12 million towards online mental health resources. He stressed that staying home is not only the best defence, it’s a matter of life and death.
