Going against these not-so-encouraging data, Belle Province has managed to bend the curve of the second wave of COVID-19.
From 16 to 22 November, Public Health identified an average of 1,169.7 COVID-19 infections per day. From 9 to 15 November, the number of infections fell by 9.4%.

Also, remember that the second wave curve weakened for the first time in October, before starting to rise again the day after Halloween.
It should also be noted that mortality has followed the path of infection, with the number of deaths rising from 186 to 203 in the last seven days, by 9.1%.
For its part, Ontario has continued to be the province with the most new cases in recent days, including a new number of 1,588 infections on Saturday. This is the largest number of positive tests identified since the pandemic began within 24 hours, along with all territories.
Despite this record and the toll approaching Sunday with 1,534 cases and 14 deaths, Ontario saw its curve stop during the week. In fact, the province maintained an average of 1,414.7 cases a day, 6.7 more than in the week of November 9-15.
In the face of minor progress in the fight against VOID-19, the Doug Ford government has ordered a four-week shutdown on Friday and the Toronto and Peel region, which will take effect on Monday. As a result, many Torontonians were crushed and on Sunday they went to various companies to supply.
