Coronavirus: Toronto Mayor Tory provides update on COVID-19 response | LIVE

Toronto Mayor John Tory, along with the city’s medical officer of health Dr. Eileen de Villa and Chief Matthew Pegg, will deliver an update on the city’s COVID-19 response on Wednesday.

The mayor welcomed on Monday Premier Doug Ford’s announcement to gradually reopen Ontario’s economy and to delay the process for Toronto until Feb. 22. Tory said he supports the decision and believes it’s necessary to give the city more time to lower its coronavirus case count.

Tory’s comments came with a warning from the city’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Eileen de Villa, as she said although there is great uncertainty around new COVID-19 variants, what’s already known “is alarming.”
