Ontario expecting another wave of COVID-19, top doctor recommends ‘layers of protection’ – CBC

Dec 15, 2022

Ontario is expected to face another wave of COVID-19 as early as January, the province’s top doctor said as he recommended “layers of protection” to help fend off a surge of infections of both that virus and the flu with the holidays around the corner.

“This virus is not going away,” Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore told CBC Toronto on Thursday.

“We’re anticipating in early January to start to see sadly yet another rise in COVID cases and it could be accentuated through the holidays.”

Wastewater data shows Ontario’s COVID-19 infections are on an upward climb after a steady decline earlier from mid-October to late November.

The number of deaths associated with the virus is also climbing once again, with 110 reported for the week ending Dec. 7, up from 93 the week before and 89 the week before that.
