Today, the Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table and Modelling Consensus Table issued a COVID-19 Projections Update. Click here to review the document COVID-19 Projections Update (January 12, 2021). We wish to highlight a couple of comments made at today’s media conference:
“When we are talking about the impact of COVID, we are not only talking about COVID. We are talking about mortality in long-term care homes; we are talking about people living with cancer, with heart disease, respiratory illness, neurological illness not being able to access the services they need.” – Matthew Anderson, President & CEO, Ontario Health, January 12, 2021.
“When we start to delay care…heart disease will worsen and patients will die as they are unable to get access to care.” – Adalsteinn Brown, Co-Chair, Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table, January 12, 2021.
