Just a day after the province revealed new COVID-19 modelling, the city of Toronto has released its projections.

“If transmission rates stay the same, Toronto Public Health is modelling daily case counts at around 130 cases per day in early December, if we see a 20 percent increase in transmission rates, we model 600 cases per day by early December,” said Dr. Eileen de Villa.

She says kids are mostly contracting COVID-19 at home, not at school as evidenced by the most recent data. There are currently 13 outbreaks our of 1,200 schools in the city.

She’s expecting a rise in cases after Thanksgiving weekend, and is advising everyone to plan ahead.

“It’s too bad we have to urge caution again, but once more this year, caution is a must.”

Meantime, the city has announced the launch of VAX-25, another vaccination push with clinics held in each of the city’s 25 wards on Saturday.
