TORONTO — Ontario will provide an update on COVID-19 modelling projections today.
The province says Dr. Adalsteinn Brown, the co-chairman of Ontario's COVID-19 Science Advisory Table, will present the update this afternoon.
The new data comes two weeks after the province invoked a stay-at-home order in a bid to halt surging case spread.
The province's chief medical officer of health says a provincewide lockdown, which started in late December, has contributed to a reduction in daily cases.
The last modelling update provided by the province earlier this month warned that rising virus case rates threatened to overwhelm the health care system.
On Wednesday, Ontario reported 1,670 new cases of COVID-19 and 49 more deaths linked to the virus.
