Ontario, Canada’s largest populous state, stalled by Omicron, schools, restaurants and gyms closed


  • Omicron likely to affect a large population in Canada
  • In the new order, shops of essential goods will be kept open with 50% capacity.
  • More than 1 lakh new cases are expected to come in the coming days.

All schools in Canada’s most populous province of Ontario have been ordered to close. This decision has been taken in view of the increasing infection by the new variant of Corona, Omicron. Schools were instructed to run online.

Apart from this, the restaurant was announced to be closed on Monday. In this order, gyms and cinemas will also remain closed and hospitals have also been asked to stop all non-urgent surgeries.

On the other hand, like America, record new infections are being seen in Ontario too. Ford pointed to projections that the total number of patients in hospitals will exceed capacity within a few weeks because of Omicron, which is going to affect a larger population.

Ford said a tsunami of new cases is coming, which is expected to bring 100,000 new cases a day. Ontario has a population of over 14.7 million. Andrew Morris, professor of infectious diseases at the University of Toronto and medical director of the Antimicrobial Management Program at the Sinai-University Health Network, said he would have no choice but to.

Morris said hospital capacity is much higher in the US than in Canada. Dr Chaim Bell, a hospital-based general internist at Sinai Health in Toronto, also noted that Canada has the lowest number of hospital beds per capita due to its industrial field, with hospitals often at over 100% capacity. move and have very little extra space.

It will take at least January 17 for the schools to run smoothly again. Ontario retail stores will only open shops with 50% capacity. Also, keeping in mind the social distance in these shops, not more than five people will be allowed.
