As COVID-19 cases certainly begin to rise throughout the city, Toronto Public Health knows that people may have virus-like symptoms.

Health officials say that symptoms are very similar to the flu or a respiratory illness, which include a cough, fever, muscle aches, and shortness of breath.

  1. More discussions are happening about which construction sites need to be closed because of the pandemic. At some construction jobs, workers can keep their distance and not come very close to each other. Other construction jobs would need people to work shoulder to shoulder. Perhaps many people need to work together to lift and carry heavy objects.

    The level of the Toronto city lockdown depends on how many virus deaths occur in the city.

    New York City in USA is having many deaths these days because of Coronavirus Covid-19.

    The future will show which North American cities will have the most virus cases.
