Continuing social distancing for a few more months in Ontario and Quebec could save tens of thousands of lives

social distancing

Canadian provinces such as Ontario and Quebec should wait several more months before lifting social distancing restrictions, according to the findings of a new mathematical model developed by University of Waterloo researchers.

The new model, called Distancing-SEIRD, indicates that continuing social distancing at the current levels in Ontario and Quebec for six months (until mid-September), could save close to 100,000 lives.

The machine learning-enabled model was recently the subject of a study that is pending peer review.
