    I don’t understand why people are travelling. I would never go anywhere. How are they comfortable with doing that. Can’t people just stay home and not travel, don’t party for awhile. 😷💜

    Try controlling borders and shutting down nonessential services!!! There is no doubt the numbers are increasing with the relaxation of Covid shutdowns without a viable vaccine in place! Thanksgiving is a safe holiday with family staying within there familial bubbles! Good luck with Halloween when you haven’t provided detailed instruction on how to safely celebrate the holidays!!! Who doesn’t know what pickle ball is? Really?! Stay on target

    I find it so weird how the numbers per day are always just a little bit higher than the day prior.

    Very odd how they have always managed to keep just a steadily increase despite the huge variance in testing.

    We are heading closer to herd immunity. More testing more exposure and less mortality and hospitalizations if we consider the ratio as a percentage rather than total numbers. Very optimistic. When did we think that we could eliminate the virus with shutdowns? We flattened the curve but lengthened the virus exposure.

    What is the deal? And this guy and his "may", "don't knows" and "maybe". They should have done the test at the border like Taiwan. And at this point the entire country should be tested. So we can start tracking. We had 7 months to be prepared, we are failing miserably. WHY!!

    If this virus is so deadly, why are they still allowing plane loads here from high case countries? When borders are shut and Covid deaths increase significantly (not only nursing home cases), then maybe it will be taken seriously.

    The government isn’t doing enough, everyone should live in bubbles and not be allowed outside for the remainder of human existence, that should stop the spread. You aren’t doing enough CBC, shut down all jobs and life.

    The rise in 'cases' 'may' be the result of Thanksgiving gatherings…..but then the thousands who protest in downtown Toronto every Saturday are not even mentioned and the spikes don't correlate with the protests. Dr. Eileen De Villa said, about this, “We did this before. We forced back the rise in infections last spring. If we limit our contact, keep our distance, and wear our masks, we will contribute significantly to the ability to limit virus spread and that is the most important thing of all,” she added. BUT, we did that without masks!! Explain 'that'. Stop asymptomatic testing and we will see the 'cases' go down.

    COMMON FLUE is completely eradicated from the planet Earth, and replaced with less lethal COVID 19. Government needed to change the NAME in order to enslave you into Orwellian World – by perpetuating FEAR.

    GRIM new milestone! Ouch! Scary indeed,…. except when only 1//2 of 1 percent are dying of it and most of those were already respitorially compromized!

    So the recent lockdown is not working, open up Ontario, take Zinc and Vitamin D3 and enjoy your life.
