Ontario woman and her husband test positive for coronavirus
One day after his wife tested positive for COVID-19, a man has become Ontario’s 6th confirmed case of coronavirus.
Dr. David Williams, Chief Medical Officer of Health, confirmed that the husband of Ontario’s fifth case of COVID-19 has tested positive for the virus. The man, in his 60s, is currently in self-isolation.
“We are working alongside Toronto Public Health, who is now and will continue to be in regular contact with this individual during their self-isolation period,” said Dr. Williams.
Toronto Public Health says continues to actively engage in contact tracing and case management, including following up with the individual and his close contacts.
The risk of being infected with COVID-19 continues to be very low for Canadians and for Ontarians in particular.
Globally, at least 80,000 people have been diagnosed with the coronavirus.
The death toll from COVID-19 is reportedly over 2,700 worldwide, with the vast majority in mainland China.
