421 new cases reported as Ontario aims to increase testing of COVID-19

Currently, there are approximately 7,740 cases of COVID-19 in Ontario, 421 of which are new cases reported as of today. 3,357 of these cases have successfully recovered from the deadly virus. As the number of cases grows day by day, the government of Ontario and the Health Minister aims to process more COVID-19 testing per day. 

Last week, Premier Doug Ford and Health Minister Christine Elliot discussed Ontario’s new COVID-19 testing strategy, which included targeting vulnerable groups such as long-term care home residents and first respondents. Through the strategy, the government expects to increase the number of COVID-19 testing per day to 8,000 tests per day by April 15 and double this amount by May 6. 

Toronto’s Parks start to Empty Out

Days after Toronto Mayor John Tory called for stricter enforcement of physical distancing rules, officials in Toronto have reported a significant decrease in the number of gatherings at local parks. 

In a statement, the City of Toronto reported that officers issued 48 tickets to people who weren’t following physical distancing rules at city parks this past weekend. Fines for not following these health guidelines can be anywhere from $1,000 up to $5,000 per ticket. 

The City of Toronto also stated that police officers will now begin to immediately issue tickets and fines rather than trying to educate residents first. Mayor John Tory also reiterated the importance of staying home and only going outside if it is necessary, such as for groceries or medical appointments.
