Ford had ordered people across the province to start home quarantine on January 14, followed by a second state of emergency on January 12.
The order will last at least 28 days. David Williams, the chief medical officer of Ontario’s Department of health, said this week that the blockade can only be lifted if the daily number of new cases is kept at about 1000 or less. More than 2600 new cases were reported in the province on January 21. (overseas / Li Fang / Suzhou Hangzhou)
