Dr. Adalsteinn Brown explained the dire health risks people will soon face


Dr. Adalsteinn Brown, co-chair of the Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table, said that increases in new daily cases are above seven per cent "on our worst days," well into worst-case scenario territory for the outlook of the illness in the province. 

About one-quarter of Ontario's hospitals have no ICU capacity left, while another quarter have only one or two beds available at any given time, Brown said. 

He added that the hospitals with very limited or no ICU capacity are spread throughout the province. "This is no longer an issue of one or two regions."
