Friday Update - Coronavirus - May 22nd

Here are today’s new developments: 

  • Some health experts warn that Canada is reopening too soon, with questions remaining about the source of community transmission of COVID-19, and - in Ontario and Quebec, especially - the numbers aren't where they should be. In Ontario, testing is down while the new cases have risen – despite saying he has been “all over” testing, Doug Ford is failing to hit targets.


Here are some concerns the NDP is working on, and solutions we’re pushing for:


  • Andrea Horwath called for a new testing regime in Ontario that includes systematic testing for essential workers and people returning to work, all congregate care settings, and mobile testing centres to begin random community testing.
