Doc urges province to focus on ICU numbers, deaths rather than daily cases


Dr. Neil Rau is among 21 Ontario doctors who have signed a joint letter urging Premier Doug Ford not to put the province in another lockdown because of rising COVID-19 cases. On Friday, Ford said his government would be implementing stricter public health measures as cases soared to a new record of 732 cases in Ontario — the largest-to-date one-day spike of new cases in the province, although 73 of those were previously uncounted cases from the spring and summer. The provincial restrictions include eliminating social bubbles for now and only having close contact with those in your own household, allowing COVID-19 assessment centre testing to be done by appointment only beginning Oct. 6, extended masking policies while out in public, limiting capacity of patrons in restaurants, bars, gyms and banquet halls, and putting a hold on any re-opening of additional businesses for 28 days.
