Coronavirus outbreak: Ford “absolutely shocked” by images of crowds in Trinity-Bellwoods park | FULL

Ontario Premier Doug Ford delivered a statement on Sunday at Queen’s Park in Toronto, imploring people in the province to get tested for COVID-19 and continue to practice social distancing in order to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus.

As well, the premier and city officials in Toronto are condemning the “dangerous” behaviour of people who flooded Trinity Bellwoods park on Saturday afternoon. Officials said this could lead to a surge in COVID-19 cases. Numerous photos shared across social media platforms depict hordes of people lounging in the park, apparently disregarding physical distancing regulations.

When Ford first saw the crowds in the park, he said during his remarks that he “thought it was a rock concert.”

Additionally, the premier said until a vaccine is found, the best defence against the virus is testing and isolating any person who is infected.
