Ontario health officials to provide COVID-19 modelling update

Dec 10 2020, 7:11 am

Ontario health officials are set to provide COVID-19 modelling updates on Thursday afternoon.

Since November 12, the province has been providing modelling data and projections every two weeks for the public to see how the pandemic may progress.

During the last update on November 26, when looking at Ontario with 1.0 to 1.01 case rate growth, case counts would be sitting around the 2,000 range by the end of the year.

If it was 1.03, it would surpass cases in France but would trail behind the UK at over 4,000 daily cases.

And if at 1.05 growth, over 9,000 daily cases would be seen in Ontario — at the time of the last report, the province was in the 1.01 growth range.

Cases have been high amid the second wave with Wednesday’s 1,890, Tuesday’s 1,676,  Monday’s record-high 1,925 and Sunday’s 1,924.

To date, Ontario has seen 132,800 coronavirus cases and 3,836 deaths.

The modelling updated will be provided at 3 pm.
