Ontario now has 20 cases of the novel coronavirus COVID-19. 2 new people were added to the total count on Tuesday. Health officials have not yet provided many details about the new cases. However, some new ones have been reported over the past few days. All of them are people that had recently traveled to Iran or Egypt, or family members of those who had visited the countries.

The Ontario (Canada) province’s first 4 cases were people with a travel history to China. 3 of those have since been completely cleared of the virus.

These new Ontario cases bring Canada’s total to 29.

There are 8 cases in British Columbia and one in Quebec.

The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada is going ahead with its annual convention in Toronto, which is scheduled to last to March 4 and draws tens of thousands of people. However, some Chinese attendees have canceled and organizers are promising they will take additional sanitation measures.
