Ontario Could Be Getting Over 2,000 New Cases A Day By December
The province is set to release updated COVID-19 modelling this afternoon, and one prediction shows that Ontario's COVID-19 cases will continue to soar.
This prediction comes from the COVID-19 Modeling Collaborative, which the province has used to create its models in the past, according to CBC.
Ontario's Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Williams will present the new trends alongside Premier Doug Ford on Thursday.
Predicted new infections per day by December 1
"We'd have to start seeing a huge change in terms of the restrictions that we have in place to not hit 2,000," Ashleigh Tuite, an infectious disease epidemiologist at the University of Toronto's Dalla Lana School of Public Health, told CBC.
"We're on this trajectory and we're not doing enough at this point to change that trajectory," she continued.
Ontario has seen record-breaking case numbers this week, recording an all-time high of 1,426 new infections on November 11.
Currently, Toronto and Peel are the only two regions in Ontario's red "control" zone of the new COVID-19 framework.
To date, the province has recorded 88,209 cases of the disease.
