Experts agree that Ontario's third wave has begun, but one physician says it could be a while before it's over.
Dr. Zain Chagla, an infectious diseases physician and Associate Professor at McMaster University, tells Narcity that the "peak" of the third wave could be months away yet depending on Ontario's restrictions.
"I have confidence that we’ll see the peak by May if there are measures put in place to limit transmission," Dr. Chagla told Narcity via email.
"If things aren’t brought under control then that peak gets pushed further out," Chagla said, saying that the province could look at restricting regional travel without imposing a December-style shutdown.
If measures are implemented, Chagla said, then it could be good news for the province.
"There’s a natural end in weeks if mobility is limited, vulnerabilities are fixed, and a real vaccine campaign focusing on hotspots is considered," he said.
