Dr. McKeown provided the following update:
- Since yesterday there have been four additional deaths,
for a total of ten in the outbreak.
- The outbreak has so far affected a total of 70 residents,
12 employees and two visitors at Seven Oaks.
- 40 residents from Seven Oaks have been admitted to hospital.
There has still been no etiological agent identified, so negative data for H5N1 remains suspect.
Since the illness spread at the 250-bed facility, 30 residents, many suffering from fits of coughing and other flu-like symptoms, have been admitted to seven different hospitals across Greater Toronto. Residents with less severe symptoms have been allowed to recover at the nursing home, which officials say will remain closed to new admissions and visitors until the outbreak is over.
