Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: Sept. 17, 2020 | Ontario puts new limits on private gatherings in some regions” – below is their description.

On this episode of Global National: As COVID-19 cases climb in three Ontario regions, Toronto, Ottawa and Peel Region, the province has put new limits on social gatherings in these areas. Jeff Semple reports on the rules, and the new fines facing rule-breakers. Plus, concern and frustration are growing in Ottawa, where people are wondering if COVID-19 protocols will be effective or enforced once Parliament resumes on Sept. 23. Abigail Bimman explains. And as Europe battles a surge in COVID-19 cases, the World Health Organization (WHO) is warning people not to succumb to pandemic fatigue. Crystal Goomansingh looks at where cases are rising, and how restrictions are changing. Turning to the U.S., which has become the epicentre for the COVID-19 pandemic: President Donald Trump is not a doctor and has no medical training at all, but he’s contradicting medical experts, suggesting widespread COVID-19 vaccinations are just weeks away. The 2020 election is weeks away, too. Jackson Proskow looks at how public trust in Trump is eroding. Four months after the feds set up financial aid to help big companies during the pandemic, the Large Employer Emergency Financial Facility (LEEFF) remains unused. Mike Le Couteur explains why, and what critics say the government should focus on instead. Also, Olivier Drouin, a Montreal father, has created a website to track COVID-19 cases at Quebec schools. Mike Armstrong explains what inspired Drouin to create the site, and how it collects data from other parents.
