There’s been a recent surge in cases of COVID-19 across Ontario, Canada. One key factor is the omicron wave that’s been affecting the province.
The Omicron variant is a variant of SARS-CoV-2 that was first reported to the World Health Organization from South Africa on 24 November 2021. Since then, it has caused some of the pandemic’s tallest, sharpest spikes in Covid-19 infections resulting in an increase in hospitalizations and deaths due to respiratory illnesses. It’s believed to be caused by a combination of environmental and viral factors, and usually lasts for several weeks.
So far this year, there have been nearly twice as many Omicron-related hospitalizations than through any other mutations since the wave was first identified. And unfortunately, the majority of these cases are occurring in young adults and children under the age of 10.
While the Omicron wave is certainly a factor in the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, it’s not the only one. The province has also seen an increase in travel over the past few weeks, which has likely contributed to the spread of the virus.
With people traveling more and the omicron wave increasing respiratory illnesses, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing a surge in COVID-19 cases across Ontario. It’s important for everyone to be vigilant about following public health guidelines to help prevent the further spread of the virus.
