Coronavirus: Ontario health official says about 7% of screened cases due to variants

Ontario’s associate chief medical officer of health Dr. Barbara Yaffe on Tuesday said that based on the most recent data from the Public Health Ontario laboratory, approximately seven per cent of screened cases of COVID-19 are due to a variant in the province.

Yaffe was holding an update briefing on COVID-19 and was joined by the province’s outbreak response coordinator Dr. Dirk Huyer.

Asked about comments by epidemiologist Dr. David Fisman, who said the province misinterpreted some of his modelling when it was decided to move March break to April, associate chief medical officer of health Dr. Barbara Yaffe defended the modelling projections shown last week and said officials are monitoring COVID-19 numbers in relation to reopening schools. She added that if Fisman has concerns, he should bring them up with the head of the science table, Dr. Adalsteinn Brown.

The province reported 904 new cases on Tuesday and 13 additional deaths.
