More than 4,000 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Ontario on Monday, along with another 19 deaths. There were 755 people in intensive care on Monday, including 516 on the ventilator.

Of the 4,447 new cases registered on Monday, 1,299 were in Toronto, 926 in its inner suburbs and 577 in York. There were 233 cases in Ottawa and 227 in Hamilton. This data is based on approximately 42,900 tests.

The Ministry of Health reported that 2,202 people were hospitalized, while more than 10% of hospitals reported not disclosing their data. Ontario says it has delivered 66,897 doses in one vaccine since Sunday’s report, with a total of 3,904,778 doses distributed so far.

There have been checkpoints at the Quebec and Manitoba borders since Monday: only those who come to Ontario are now authorized to work, medical care, transport goods and exercise their domestic contract rights. To spend.

Despite the backlash over other measures announced at the same time on Friday, the Dougford government remained steadfast over the move over the weekend.

The Prime Minister on Saturday rescinded the decision to close the playgrounds in the wake of a quick response from parents and public health experts. They argue that this action is unlikely to curb the spread of COVID-19 because evidence suggests that most transmissions take place indoors.

The Ford government also quickly rescinded new police powers granted the day before Saturday. During a stay-at-home order, police can no longer stop a pedestrian or driver from asking for his personal address and the reason he is outside. Before questioning him, the police must have “reason to suspect” that a citizen has left to attend an organized public event or social gathering.
