SHARETORONTO -- For the third consecutive day, health officials confirmed more than 400 new cases of COVID-19 in Ontario.The province recorded 412 new cases and 27 more deaths related to the novel coronavirus Saturday morning, marking a 1.7 per cent increase over the day prior.
The number of new cases is down slightly over Friday’s report when the province confirmed 441 new infections —the highest daily increase in new cases since May 8 — a jump Ontario Premier Doug Ford called "concerning.”And while the five-day rolling average of new cases has continued to increase since May 12, the number of tests performed in Ontario has fallen short of its testing capacity for the sixth consecutive day.
According to the Ministry of Health, the province performed 11,028 in the last 24 hour period, a far cry from the government’s goal to complete tests 16,000 daily. The province has previously said that it has the capacity to conduct at least 20,000 tests a day.
Ford has expressed frustration with the shortfall, saying he would be "” if testing numbers continue to fall below what is expected.As it stands, there are 25,040 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario, including 2,048 deaths.The number of resolved COVID-19 cases however continues to outweigh active cases in the province at 19,146 recoveries or 76.5 per cent.Read more: CTV News »
Not surprised. Approximately 14 days ago we had a really warm day where lots of people went out, parks & sidewalks full, no social distancing, few masks. Numbers will continue to rise. Health officials must also track look back 14 days to see the reason for spike. It would be helpful to know where recent cases are accelerating (specific cities or towns, healthcare or long term care facilities, types of workplaces, etc,). Perhaps concerned people will let their guard down.
Prayers 😢🙏🏽 Not good Ontario.....we can’t go four steps backward.....please be deligent and follow the rules.....distancing 6 feet from each other...wear a mask when you can’t distance and wash your hands frequently..... If they had proper testing those numbers would be sustantially more. Extreme Physical Distancing is better..
Meanwhile in BC, they have fewer new cases than we have deaths. The funny thing is we close everything down, hide everyone from existence as best we can, then while we slowly open things up the numbers spike and everyone thinks it shouldnt be happening. People who actually think that are dumb. That is the whole process toward herd immunity.
Who’s at the helm of this province? Do the right thing, lock this place down till be see flattening! fordnation When TF is fordnation or even better JustinTrudeau going to SHUT that province down? Lock it down, no one in or out, and actually try and contain their epidemic? Clear, fat ass Ford is not doing his job!

SO WHAT? Damn..... might wanna slow things down... ☑️ Bought & Paid For By The Globalist Cabal ☑️ Corrupt ☑️ Biased ☑️ Narrative - Tank World Economy ☑️ Narrative - Fear Mongering ☑️ Lies Spins Fake News ☑️ Narrative - Mandatory Vaccinations & Microchips These are 4 days a go now in the last 24 hrs Look around. Nobody cares about the pandemic anymore, Tory is closing roads for his 'End of Pandemic' parade, Dougie wants to open up more business. WE ARE NOT READY FOR THIS. MORE AT-RISK PEOPLE WILL DIE IF WE CARRY ON LIKE THIS.
It's gonna go up more because a lot of people in public places especially at the groceries store doesn't wear face mask and observe social distancing. I guess Doug Ford must be using his gorilla formula Nah...let's just stay in forever..😂 Mandate facemask or covering for all public indoor places, Doug Ford. You’ve been gutsy so far. Here’s one more that will be appreciated by many. fordnation facemasks
If you test more you will have more cases, no big deal 3846 active cases So where exactly are these cases coming from? Wish news would report how many “active “cases. The headlines are starting to leave out deaths, which are still on a downward trend over the last week with cases overall down over the last 2 weeks in comparison to the weeks prior. Where is the info on the ages of cases/deaths? Why is that being left out...
