Spike in Ontario COVID-19 cases 'a cause for concern,' says Ford


Ontario Premier Doug Ford says a major spike in COVID-19 cases in the province is 'a cause for concern.' The province reported 313 cases of COVID-19 on Monday.


Ontario introduced a number of stricter public health measures following a record-high number of new COVID-19 cases, but the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario says the new restrictions are "too little, too late."
The novel coronavirus has infected more than 37 million people worldwide and caused more than a million deaths. In Germany, Covid-19 cases are rising rapidly, with almost all of its largest cities becoming virus hotspots. Meanwhile, England is rolling out new lockdown rules as the city of Liverpool is set to be placed under tier three lockdown restrictions, the strictest of the country's new Covid-19 rules.
COVID-19 cases in Ontario have topped more than 400, the province's highest daily case count since early June. So what is causing the spike in cases? Critical care physician Michael Warner breaks down some of the causes and challenges going forward.
CNN's Nick Watt reports on the spike in Covid-19 cases at colleges in 36 states and the FDA suggesting a coronavirus vaccine could be approved before their trials are over.
