Canada’s daily COVID numbers inflated?

With the number of new daily COVID cases rising in different parts of Canada, pressure is on to reinstitute lockdowns that have absolutely devastated the economy.

Now, news is coming out that the number of new COVID cases in Ontario, Canada’s largest province, may be inflated. With the provincial government’s health department reporting record-breaking numbers of new cases, it has come to light that those record-breaking numbers included dozens of cases that in some instances occurred months ago.

The Toronto Sun explains:

Speaking Monday at a press briefing, Dr. Eileen de Villa declined to answer direct questions about how and why unreported case data from earlier this year was included in daily new infection numbers late last week — instead describing the process that lead to the correction of months-old errors. […]

Shortly after Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott tweeted Friday’s purportedly record-breaking 732 new COVID-19 cases on Oct. 2, she included a note describing cases “that occured in the spring or summer are being reported today.”

Elliott tweeted 323 of those cases came from Toronto — and the Toronto Sun reported Friday that tally included 73 previously-unreported cases.
