Toronto officials outline plan for expected resurgence of COVID-19

Is Ontario nearing the much-dreaded second wave? Four charts that sum up COVID-19 in August plus what we can learn from cities around the world

Most Ontarians fear a second wave of COVID-19, survey says
“An overwhelming majority of Ontarians are afraid that a second wave of COVID-19 is near, with levels of anxiety remaining unchanged since the pandemic first erupted in the province in March.

Around 83 per cent of Ontarians surveyed say they’re worried that social distancing and lockdown measures are being relaxed too quickly, as schools and businesses open again. And 73 per cent say they’re becoming more wary of people’s abilities to properly follow protocols that curb the spread of illness.

These findings come from a Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) poll of 1,002 Ontarians, conducted with the help of Pollara Strategic Insights in late July. The association said the survey was commissioned to better understand how people’s mental health is changing as the pandemic progresses.”
