Doug Ford is responding to critics who are asking, where is Ontario’s top doctor amid a 6th wave?
Dr. Kieran Moore stopped his weekly pandemic updates four weeks ago, amid improving COVID-19 numbers but hasn’t been seen since.
“He’s done an incredible job from day one,” said Premier Ford. “I’m his biggest fan.”
Critical care physician Dr. Michael Warner accuses the Ford Tories of pretending there isn’t a sixth wave and is urging Dr. Moore to resume his updates. Dr. Warner adds the average person isn’t really sure what to do.
Ford is also calling Dr. Moore the hardest working people he’s ever met.
“He never rests, he works around the clock for the people of Ontario, like yesterday, he had a meeting of all public health officers throughout the province, he’s on the job 24/7.”
The sixth wave has driven a 40 % week-over-week increase in hospitalizations.
