On February 08th, 2021 Public Health Ontario recorded that there were less newly confirmed cases than newly recovered cases, with its daily epidemiological summary (archived at Ministry of Health) as:
There are a total of 280,494 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario reported to date. Compared to the previous day, this represents:
- An additional 1,022 confirmed cases
- An additional of 17 deaths
- A recovery of 1,388 confirmed cases
This equates a net value of 1,022 - 1,388 cases, or -366 cases. For these alarming numbers, we have been forced to perpetuate a lockdown (not a lockdown, but only a state of emergency) to "reduce the numbers".
