    As COVID-19 cases surge in Ontario, some hospitals have run out of room for patients.

    Health officials are coordinating hundreds of COVID-19 patient transfers across the province to make space for massive intensive care unit (ICU) needs in the coming week, Ontario Health says.

    As Abigail Bimman reports, more hospitals outside hot zones are accepting out-of-region patients, in complicated transfers one doctor describes as “critical care hopscotch.”
