COVID-19 cases in Ontario’s hot spots will start to decline in next week or two, health minister claims


As the daily number of new COVID-19 cases in Ontario’s hot spots remain high, the province’s health minister believes that new infections will begin to taper off in “the next week or two.”

Christine Elliott made the comments on Wednesday as the province announced a $24.3 million investment in mental health services for children and youth.

“What we expect to see in the next while, the next week or two, will be a reduction in the number of cases,” Elliott said.

Elliot’s comments came in a response to a question about the efficacy of the government’s modified Stage 2 restrictions that were placed upon Toronto, Peel Region and Ottawa earlier this month.

The new restrictions, which include the closure of indoor dining, gyms and movie theatres in those areas (as well as York Region, more recently) were put in place by the government to curb the spread of COVID-19. US SPREAD GOOD NEWS!
