Figure 1 below shows the epidemic curve of those (cases) who became ill over a period of time. January 15, 2020 was the first reported COVID-19 case in Canada where a person showed symptoms. From January to end of February, these were early cases of COVID-19 of travelers who had returned back to Canada from countries where an outbreak of COVID-19 had already occurred. Thereafter, the number of confirmed cases grew significantly starting in March, as more Canadians were being infected through person-to-person contact within local communities.

Figure 1 also displays a grey-colored zone, which is the time lapse between individuals becoming sick, and when those people report their information to the Public Health Agency of Canada. Thus, the amount of time required for those people to contact medical or healthcare professionals, to getting tested and receiving their test results for Ontario Public Health to collect their information is not definitive.

Based on the above trend with the current quarantine in effect, physical distancing is systematically working.

STAY HOME to flatten the curve in the spread of COVID-19 and reduce new cases.

What is Coronavirus (COVID-19)?


Coronavirus is a highly infectious disease from a large family of numerous viruses that affect people and animals. The contagious virus is known to cause mild to chronic respiratory infections ranging from common cold and flu symptoms, to far more severe illnesses such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). The most recently discovered strain of coronavirus is "COVID-19" (Covid-19 is the disease, and SARS-2-CoV is the virus).

What is deadly about the coronavirus (COVID-19) is its asymptomatic (i.e. showing no symptoms at all) incubation period of up to 14 days, which is currently spreading the disease globally at an exponential rate.

The virus spreads peer-to-peer (P2P) through small droplets of saliva from the nose or mouth, when an individual infected with COVID-19 exhales or coughs. These saliva droplets land on surfaces, then people subsequently touch those surfaces with their hands before touching their mouth, nose, or eyes.

A person can also contract the virus by simply breathing in the (coronavirus) droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs or exhales. Thus, stay at least 6 feet away from others when out in public, or from someone who is sick.

Just think about this for perspective: If 100 people were unknowingly infected with the coronavirus, and each person went around doing what they usually do on a day-to-day basis such as shopping, working, exercising, etc; imagine how many other people they are in direct contact in 7 day period. Hundreds.

Therefore, the (P2P) transmission would skyrocket at astronomical rates, and that is exactly what has occurred in European countries such as Italy, Spain, and the UK.

With a median incubation period of ~7 days before showing any of the signs below, it’s already too late.

•Fever
•Cough
•Shortness of breath (difficulty breathing)
•Body aches and chronic bone or joint pain

Hence, the Government of Canada website is advising that every person in Canada self-isolate at home to reduce the spread of this viral disease that needs to flatten out before it spirals out of control even further.

In the event that you start to feel any of the aforementioned symptoms above or if you feel unwell, it is best advised that you do NOT go to a Toronto regional COVID-19 Assessment Centre or hospital unless you are experiencing difficulty breathing and/or your condition worsens. Instead, stay at home and for Ontario residents, call 1-866-797-0000.

If it's an emergency, do not call 911 and call the 811 phone number instead.

Let's be considerate and allow those more vulnerable to serious complications from coronavirus such as the elderly, to be treated promptly at your local Toronto or GTA surrounding hospital. We need to reduce the load on the already limited healthcare resources, which includes doctors, nurses, medical supplies and equipment.
