Coronavirus: Ontario health officials impose restrictions on 3 regions as cases rise | FULL

Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health, announced new restrictions for the province on Friday, specifically in the Toronto, Peel and Ottawa regions, as COVID-19 cases continued to spike with a majority found in the three locations.

Under the new restrictions, effective Saturday at 12:01 a.m. for 28 days, the three regions will see indoor dining suspended and the closure of indoor gyms, cinemas, fitness centres and casinos. There will also be restrictions on gatherings, including events like weddings.

Schools and places of worship will remain open under the restrictions.

Chief coroner Dr. Dirk Huyer and Adalsteinn Brown, dean of the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto, joined Williams for the announcement.

Brown said while a response is needed as COVID-19 cases continue to rise, restrictions are not needed for the entire province at this time, but all three officials cautioned that other regions seeing small case increases need to properly react so they do not also face restrictions in the future.

The province of Ontario reported 939 new cases of COVID-19 on Friday, its highest single-day increase since the pandemic began, and five new deaths.

    Incredible and dodging clear questions. When asked about why are schools open when all else is shut down, shifts to messaging to younger coherts. Says Min of Ed reports hasn't seem a lot of transmission within schools, just people coming in and not consistent within the province. Makes no sense why managed restaurants (eg.) are closed and killing small business – but huge bubbles involved in families and kids spreading isn't an issue. Inconsistent messaging and not credible advice. In addition, new language added: congruent gatherings … little confusing, aren't schools congruent gathering? Ridiculous social messaging, unclear and inconsistent.

    Here's some data from some other experts–the COVID recovery rates from the CDC:
    0-19 = 99.997%
    20-49 = 99.98%
    50-69 = 99.5%
    70+ = 94.6%

    WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW is MORE health and political honesty, based on evidence and integrity, and far LESS lies, deception and misleading numbers from so called "health officials", "experts", and MSM puppets.

    It's incredible how loosely the terms "expert" and "doctor" are used these days.
