Data doesn't support Dr. Williams' call to close for restaurants, gyms
So here is the big question after looking at the new models and data released by the province on Thursday. Did the doctors advising Premier Doug Ford lie to him or at the least hide data from him when they advised him to put large parts of the province into a modified Stage 2 of the lockdown?
Dr. David Williams, the province's Chief Medical Officer of Health, released new data and modelling on Thursday that showed Ontario is not following the worst-case scenario they had released on Sept. 30 and is instead trending lower in terms of case counts and hospitalizations.
That's the good news.
The bad news is the province's top doctor released data that no sane politician would use to close whole sections of the economy.
