Brampton Civic Hospital reports lowest number of COVID cases since start of pandemic

Brampton Civic Hospital reports that just two patients are now being treated for COVID-19.

The news comes as welcome relief to a hospital system that was one of the most over-burdened in the country during the height of the pandemic and just recently was handling dozens of new cases on a daily basis.

The update was provided by Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown at his weekly news conference. The mayor also pointed out that just one person is being treated in the intensive care unit of the hospital for COVID.

“This makes me pretty proud of our community,” said Brown. “It was not too long ago when we were transferring 100 patients out of the hospital (Brampton Civic) to other hospitals because we were completely full.”

The mayor credits the ongoing vaccination campaign from Peel Public Health for keeping COVID numbers at bay to allow patient care at a level that can be reasonably be handled.

Brown also said the community has done its part in controlling the spread of COVID-19 by getting vaccinated.
