Ontario's chief medical officer of health Dr. David Williams and associate chief medical officer Dr. Barbara Yaffe held a briefing on Monday to discuss the ongoing response to COVID-19 in the province.
Yaffe said that there were 424 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the total to 14,856. She said while the province had seen a decrease in the number of new cases over the past several days, there were also 57 new deaths to report. This is the highest single-day increase in deaths from the coronavirus in the province.
Williams spoke about the province's framework to reopen amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but said they still had a "ways to go" before it could enter stage one of the plan and Ontario was still in the "pandemic phase." He said testing numbers would need to go down "substantially" and do so progressively over a two-week period before they could enter into the first phase.
Asked why some people were still becoming infected with COVID-19, excluding health care workers and long-term care homes, despite ongoing measures, Williams said that’s the question they’re still trying to determine. He said based on interviews with those who have tested positive, however, some have still decided to violate the physical distancing measures and stressed again why it’s so important to follow the rules. Williams added that the daily cases of community spread are approximately in the high 200s, possibly in the 300s, and that needs to drop even further before a reopening of the province can occur.
