Ontario premier calls highest jump in COVID-19 cases in two weeks 'concerning'

TORONTO -- Ontario Premier Doug Ford said it is "concerning" that the province has recorded the highest daily number of new COVID-19 cases in two weeks, adding that he's "up all night" thinking about the recent upward trend.

On Friday, health officials reported 441 new cases of the disease, bringing the total to 24,628.

Yaffe added that health officials will continue to monitor closely for potential hot spots across the province.

There have been no deaths recorded in people 19 years of age or younger.

Premier Doug Ford warned health officials on Thursday he "will be like an 800-pound gorilla on their backs" if testing numbers continue to fall below what is expected.
