TORONTO — The Ontario Hospital Association says the province has hit the critical mark of 150 COVID-19 patients in its intensive care units.
Earlier this month, medical experts advising the government noted that the figure would mark a point where Ontario hospitals have to begin cancelling surgeries.
The CEO of the hospital association says all regions are reporting increased admissions.
Premier Doug Ford said yesterday that further restrictions are coming in virus hot spots because hospitals are reaching capacity.
Ford says he expects to announce the new restrictions for Toronto, Peel, and York Region tomorrow.
