SCOOP: What I've found out about the #COVID19 modelling that Premier Doug Ford says will make you "fall off your chair." #COVID19Ontario…
All of this information comes from multiple sources who have seen the modelling, which was presented to cabinet on Friday.
However, the Ford government is not planning to release it publicly until tomorrow, nor announce any new restrictions until tomorrow. #COVID19Ontario
Sources say the modelling suggests Ontario is on track to report an average of 6,000 new cases of #COVID19 daily before the end of this month. That would be 10X as high as the peak of the first wave. #COVID19Ontario

Ford: "This is so, so serious. Matter of fact, this is the most serious situation we've ever been in, ever, ever, since the beginning of this pandemic." #COVID19Ontario
Ford: "We are in a crisis, that's how I can describe it. It is scary." #COVID19Ontario
