Coronavirus: Ontario health official says worst-case scenario would see 40,000 cases a day by mid-February

Dr. Adalsteinn (Steini) Brown, co-chair of the Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table, said on Tuesday that if the province hits a case growth of five per cent, which is possible, the province could see more than 20,000 a day by the middle of February. He said that a worst-case scenario of case growth at seven per cent would result in more than 40,000 cases per day.
