The coronaviral pandemic is not yet over, and the next wave of infections could hit many cities in Canada.
And now the Ontario government is trying to figure out how to put it all behind us.
A new government advisory panel is looking into what factors could be associated with the rise in coronavid cases in Toronto, and whether the city could be an indicator for other major centres.
The report comes as the Ontario health ministry is investigating whether a similar spike in the number of new cases in Windsor may be connected to the coronavillae that struck that city.
A report from the Ontario Institute for Health Information found that there has been a spike in coronovirus cases in the Windsor area, but only if you look at the city as a whole.
Ontario’s capital city, the capital of Ontario, has experienced a rise in the coronoviral rate of infection (CRIOI) of about 25 per cent since March.
That is compared to a fall in the national rate of COVID-19 cases of about 12 per cent, which is not as big a difference.
In the province of Ontario itself, COVID cases in March were up about 20 per cent compared to the same period last year, according to the Health Ministry.
Ontario has seen an uptick in the numbers of new coronavirept infections, but the ministry has yet to find a link.
The health ministry has said the province has no evidence of a link between the new cases and the coronaval outbreaks.
The Ontario government’s new advisory panel has been working for some time to figure that out.
Ontario is now one of the provinces grappling with the spike in COVID infections, and it’s not clear yet if the coronavia can be attributed to the city or the province.
The committee was created to examine the link between coronavids and other infectious diseases and trends in Ontario, and to identify trends and information gaps that need to be addressed to ensure Ontario remains a safe place for people.
It also has a new role to play, said Andrew Stewart, the vice-chair of the advisory panel.
“It’s a position that can’t be left on the sidelines, and we need to take the lead,” Stewart said.
The advisory panel was created in response to a request from the health ministry, but it is not expected to release its findings for a few months.
The province has been in discussions with the advisory committee, and officials have indicated that they are going to be looking into the city, as well.
The Toronto Region District Health Authority has warned that the city is already in the midst of an increase in COID cases.
The TRSHA has said it will be releasing more information on the spike as soon as it becomes available.
But in the meantime, the government has already started taking measures to protect residents from the coronvirus.
The city of Toronto has been told to install barriers at its transit shelters and to close streets for buses and taxis.
In addition, the city has been asked to reduce the number and use of hand sanitizer in public places.
The mayor’s office says it is also working to ensure that Toronto residents have access to a public health centre that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to help them stay safe.
Health officials have said that people in the city should not be exposed to any of the coronaves or other airborne particles that may be circulating in the air.
They are also urging people to avoid touching anyone who is sick with the coronave virus.
In an email to CBC News, Toronto Mayor John Tory said he is confident that Toronto is ready to deal with the pandemic.
“We have all the resources we need, and as the situation evolves we will make the best decisions that we can,” he wrote.
“But I can tell you that we will not be running out of time.”
The Ontario Department of Health has released a map showing which areas are seeing a rise and which are seeing declines in coronave counts.
It shows that the most vulnerable neighbourhoods in Toronto are on the east side of the city and north of the Gardiner Expressway.
The map also shows that there is a strong correlation between the increase in coronaves in the east and in other vulnerable areas.
The maps also show that there are areas in the west, north and south of the City of Toronto that have experienced a drop in the total number of cases.
“There is an enormous amount of work that needs to be done in this province to ensure the safety of residents and visitors, and that’s why we’ve been putting a great deal of emphasis on making sure we are doing everything we can to prevent people from being exposed to these respiratory illnesses,” said Health Minister Deb Matthews.
“The health and safety of Ontarioers and visitors is our number one priority.”
While the government is working on measures to keep people safe, it is taking steps to take care of those
