    Ontario’s science advisors are warning a third wave has taken hold in that province, driven by the more contagious variants of concern.

    The Ontario Hospital Association issued a stark warning on Monday, saying that the province had now entered into a third wave, citing a sharp increase in new variant-of-concern (VOC) cases and rising admissions to intensive care units (ICUs).

    And there are troubling signs that the variants are spreading fast across parts of western Canada too.

    Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Deena Hinshaw said they are keeping a close watch on the trends.

    “If we see those new cases start to go up … essentially that could mean that we’re entering another growth phase and, of course, that would cause some concern about whether or not a third wave could be possible,” she said at a news conference in Edmonton on Monday.
