BRANT – The Brant County Health Unit reported one new COVID-19 infection Wednesday. There are 16 active cases in Brantford and Brant County and a total 188 confirmed cases, including 167 recoveries and five deaths.
Ontario health officials say the province could see upwards of 1,000 coronavirus cases a day in October, as the second wave is in full swing. The stark new forecasting comes in updated modeling released Wednesday morning by the provincial government. Cases in the province are now doubling almost every 10 to 12 days, and while the second wave was initially impacting people between the ages of 20 to 39, it has now begun to impact ages across the board.
