Ontario’s chief medical officer of health is set to speak publicly for the first time in nearly a month.
Doctor Kieran Moore is planning a media event for 1pm Monday and according to the Ministry of Health, will speak about “how the province is managing COVID 19 and expanding access to anti-virals.”
Doctor Moore last spoke and took questions from reporters on March 13th, a week before the mask mandate was lifted for most indoor public settings.
Since then the province has seen a rebound in case counts from limited PCR testing, a surge in the number of viral copies found in Ontario’s waste water and hospitalizations related to COVID trending back upward.
Ontario’s premier and his health minister have both downplayed the current trend, calling it “a little spike” in cases and nothing the hospitals can’t handle.
