Ford said the goal of the first pillar is to help hospitals across Ontario maintain capacity with the use of the flu shot.

Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott said on Wednesday that 69 per cent (156) of the new cases involved people under the age of 40.

The measures range from reducing backlogs in the health-care system to launching the biggest flu shot campaign in the province's history.

Ford said Ontario has ordered 5.1 million flu vaccine doses, including 1.3 million high-dose vaccines for seniors and those with pre-existing health conditions at a cost of $70 million. The first shipments of the flu shots should be arriving next week.

"What Doug Ford did announce Tuesday was a vague promotion of flu vaccinations", Horwath said in a statement.

"Anyone at all who wants a flu shot this year can get one", he said. Ford says Tuesday's announcement marks the first step of Ontario's pandemic fall preparedness plan, which will be rolled out over several days and contains six pillars.

So the data released Tuesday morning are current as of Monday at 2 p.m. and includes all the reports from the weekend. "Because that's up to all of us, we all have a part to play", he said.

"I did ask The Ottawa Hospital to move into Laurier Manor and West End Villa, to assist Extendicare in managing the homes, so that the level of medical expertise and care would be strengthened, so that they could look at all of the other aspects that make it possible to control an outbreak", said Dr.

"This is a massive, massive plan, it's very robust, jammed with items". "If we laid it all down at once, the message isn't going to get out to the people".

Ontario is reporting a big drop in the number of new COVID-19 cases after almost 500 infections were reported just a day before.
