Third presumptive COVID-19 case announced in Toronto, marking 4th case in Ontario

Ontario health officials have announced a new presumptive case of novel coronavirus in Toronto two days after all cases were cleared in the province.

The latest presumptive case of COVID-19 is a woman from China who landed in Canada on Feb. 21, according to a statement by Ontario’s Ministry of Health. 

Taking advice from Telehealth Ontario, she went to North York General Hospital’s emergency department “with an intermittent cough that was improving.”

“As per established infection, prevention and control protocols, the patient was cared for at North York General Hospital using all appropriate precautions including being isolated and was tested for COVID-19,” the statement says.

“Being mildly ill, the woman was discharged home and, per protocols, went into self-isolation.”
