Ontario set a grim new record on Christmas Day, as the province reported more than 10,000 new COVID-19 cases in a single day. Another 9,826 new cases were added on Sunday, Dec. 26.
Experts say the true number of cases is likely much higher, with testing centres struggling to keep up with demand.
Morganne Campbell reports on the surge in cases and its impact on Boxing Day shopping.

I'm glad I don't live in "Ontario".
Or whatever it is now.
When will logic and common sense return. Omicron is a gift. Very mild, spreads quick and we all can get natural immunity which is by far better then Covid19 shot.
Those that are obese, elderly and have comorbidities should get the booster shot and stay home. Let those that are healthy, take care of themselves be free to move about. Covid is not going anywhere, it will be with us forever. Life is not meant to be restricted. Life is a risk. Stop the insanity.
Oh, hey what about telling people what they can do to mitigate the affects of the virus……😱😱😱
I have seen the dead bodies lying on the sidewalk. Wait….that was in wuhan. Huh. Why haven't all the homeless died in the last 2 years?
Minus 20, frozen salt water on road. Risk insurance to return a t-shirt that does not fit?
Covid did nothing… its the govts response.
Most customers showed here do not celebrate Xmas. Just saying.
The best deal right now is to stay home and enjoy time with your family
i bet you 80% of the spread is due to lineups alone!
Since they turned the actual boxing day into boxing week and boxing month ,whatever magic it had has gone away. I can go in next week or do it online.
Lol. So controllable.
The lies must continue.
The stupidity of majority of people believing the MSM and the government is what driving these measures..
Not omicron but lack of good paying jobs and real sales. I looked online and was disappointed as usual. Better sales all year long.
BULLCHIT no one has any MONEY THIS YEAR with all these LOCKDOWNS AND BULL CRAP..
I found a box of vaccine in the garbage phizer doses im selling dem 49.95$ cdn for 1 vile , 2 viles for $100
IM STILL USING THE DOWN VOTE BUTTON 👎
Merry Christmas to all unvaccinated. Its a privilege to stand side by side with y'all.
I bought Rapid Test Kits for the whole family this year. They make great stocking stuffers. We can now test each other and our friends all we want. Got a year supply. 🙂
These people are the true NPC, they will lineup in the cold and buy stuff they didn't come for lol. They are doing everything to save the economy, bless their hearts.
LOOK AT ALL THE SHEEP 🐑🐑🐑🐑
Subdued? I wasn’t asked to show my papers anywhere and everywhere I went was packed, it was beautiful! No places were closed that I saw so.. yeah more propaganda
Do you guys consider this "newsworthy?" Looks the same as the last boxing days.
We have been told those masks that everyone in video is wearing are not acceptable only n95s will work so why are they allowed in to shop?
This is not news 😆
"We will own everything, and you will be happy".
I spent boxing day with my extended family and ate leftovers. It was great.
Nobody cares about this crap anymore. Take your life back people.
Some people like to be led like sheep. 88% of the province is fully vaccinated. Hospitalizations remain low proof of the efficacy of the vaccines. These government policies are becoming draconian. Covid is never going away. We're not going to wake up one day and magically have zero cases. We need to stop acting like the only risk we take in life revolves around covid-19. People seem to forget that the government works for us we tell them what to do. And their job is to facilitate that. We as Canadians have the right to live, live freely, and pursue what motivates us not because man or some government says so but because these are our God given natural rights as Canadians.
Lmao i went out and bought a couple things and it was great. Completley dead inside the store. Thanks, sheep!
Standing in line in the cold during a world wide pandemic to buy something that they don't need , un real
We need chaos . We need change
Lmao Scarborough is filled with soooo many wastes xD
Meanwhile I was on the subway yesterday that was so packed you could barely get on it, I guess half capacity doesn't apply to the ttc like everything else right?
WELL FORD LET THEM !!!!
iNTERESTING LOOKING CROWD, I HAVE A FEELING THEY DON'T WATCH THIS MEDIA, LOL….GOOD FOR THEM!
And of Course the Cowardly Liberal Party is never going to offer any support to OUR WONDERFUL CONSERVATIVE PARTY UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF PREMIER FORD< This ia a dysfunctional manner in which to attempt to rebuild the liberal party, that was shattered in so many pieces by their previous leadership, the new leadership, as dysfunctional as ever is attempting to rebuild the liberal party by attempting to destroy the conservative leadership, that has been the vanguard in this terrible fight against the most terrible and deadliest virus to strike the world and have been doing a marvelous management, under the most difficult conditions, if premier had taken the advice from opponent parties, many more families would be filling the funeral homes! IN MY OPINION, and the worst offender in my opinion, is the dysfunctional DEL DUCA!
