Shomporko Desk:-Prediction of Ontario Public Health is, the province could see between 3,000 to 15,000 coronavirus deaths in the province over the course of the pandemic under the current intervention measures.
Without any measures, they predict 100,000 deaths by the end of the pandemic which is unprecedented. Officials expect 1,600 deaths and 80,000 cases by April 30 under the current scenario.
President of Public Health Dr. Peter Donnelly explained that projections and modelling of a brand new viral disease like this are “very inexact, but what is important is that we use them early and quickly to advise us to the correct measures to take. That is what has happened in Ontario”.He adds the full scope of the pandemic could last anywhere between 18 months and two years due to potential secondary and tertiary waves of the coronavirus.
