January 8, 2020 – Wuhan Flu

Dear Constituent:

Yesterday, Toronto Public Health issued a bulletin with respect to the cases of the undiagnosed viral pneumonia which are being investigated by health authorities in the City of Wuhan, in central China. Chinese authorities have engaged the World Health Organization (WHO) to assist with the investigation. The WHO reports that the main symptoms of this pneumonia are a fever followed by difficulty breathing. Toronto Public Health is not aware of any reported cases of this illness in Canada and the overall risk to residents is considered very low.
