COVID-19 pandemic, one expert says.Dr. Isaac Bogoch, an infectious diseases expert with University Health Network, said if you look around the province, and at “wastewater signals,” it is “pretty clear that there’s a growing burden of COVID in many communities across the province.”Bogoch said the “signals are very clear.”Data released on March 17 by the Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table said the province’s wastewater signal had stopped declining and was increasing slightly.

The data also showed the province’s test positivity rate had stopped declining.
