“This is what we feared,” Ontario’s top doctor says after 13-year-old’s death | FULL

Ontario’s chief medical officer of health Dr. David Williams and associate chief medical officer of health Dr. Barbara Yaffe both offered their condolences to the family of Emily Viegas, a 13-year-old Brampton girl who died after testing positive for coronavirus.

“This is what we feared,” Williams said, adding that the coronavirus variants pose an increased risk to younger people.

“The third wave is not to be taken lightly at all,” he said.

Yaffe added Monday that Ontario is “actively monitoring” the B.1.617 variant first discovered in India. She said Canada should look at non-essential travel “and really cutting down on that.”

As of Monday, Ontario has identified 36 cases of the B.1.617 variant.

Ontario reported 3,510 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, bringing the provincial total to 448,861. Monday’s case count is lower than Sunday’s 3,947 new infections and is the second day in a row cases have been lower than 4,000.

Ontario announces new 911 models of care, confirms request for COVID-19 help from feds | FULL

Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott announced Monday that the province was setting up new 911 models of care to cover 33 municipalities that she described would provide other options for paramedics for treatment of patients as opposed to immediately bringing patients to hospital emergency departments.

According to the government, current policy requires 911 patients be brought to hospital but the new model, eligible palliative care patients and those experiencing mental health and addictions challenges could receive help from the paramedic directly or in the community where appropriate. The announcement comes as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to strain Ontario hospitals.

Elliott also confirmed the province had made a request to the federal government for assistance from the Canadian Armed Forces or the Red Cross due to increasing numbers of COVID-19 patients in intensive care units, adding they were waiting to hear back for a response. Asked why the request wasn't made earlier, Elliott said it was an additional way to get more assistance.
