Tagging onto my post from yesterday…
My news feed was awash with the latest results of COVID in Essex County.
- Windsor-Essex reports new one-day record with 98 additional cases of COVID-19
- Jarvis: Leamington mayor warned health unit ‘worse will happen here’
- Leamington, Ont., rallies behind migrant workers as 96 farm workers test positive for COVID-19
- Ontario reports 257 new coronavirus cases, including 177 from Windsor-Essex
This was just a sickening article to read. There’s no two ways about it.
To get the information and the importance and significance behind these stories, I turned back to the Public Health Ontario tool. Again, I plotted the cases in South-Western Ontario with the updated information. (Information is updated at 11:30)
What about provincially?
The tools definitely show two different stories. Obviously, the y-axis is different in each case but there’s enough data to view and understand trends.
How I’m still seeing people walking around without face masks in public is just beyond me. My heart goes out to the communities of Kingsville and Leamington and my friends there.
I know that there are all kind of plans in the works for testing and isolating but not everyone can be reached that way. You can’t go through a day without reading this news; success in defeating this will only come from all of us being smart.
