Grim projections show action is necessary to stop the spread – Ontario Official Opposition NDP Leader Andrea Horwath
QUEEN’S PARK — New modelling data released this Thursday, November 12th shows that Ontario needs to take powerful, decisive, immediate action to stop the spread of COVID-19, or cases will reach 2,000 to 6,000 per day, and hospitals will be overwhelmed.
Official Opposition leader Andrea Horwath released the following statement in response to the new information –
“This data modelling is horrific, and shows that Doug Ford’s choice to overrule expert advice, and cancel public health protections was gambling with people’s lives, and condemning us to live with COVID longer.
The government is speeding in the wrong direction, and Ontario has to change course right now, or people will die. Hospitals will stop doing surgeries again. Jobs and businesses will be lost. And the frustration, agony and loneliness will continue for months.
Ontarians are dreaming of the day this insidious virus is gone, and they can see their friends and family again. Acting now can bring that day sooner.
This morning (of November 12th), I called for a circuit breaker in hot-zone regions. I want those hardest-hit regions to enter a Modified Stage One for two weeks, with schools and hospitals open, and provincial funding for businesses that are impacted.
I’m going to keep fighting until the Ford government agrees to do that, and for the sake of all our families, I hope that agreement comes soon.”
