An additional long-term care home has been taken over by Ontario after it was unable to control a coronavirus outbreak, reports CTV News
In the home, 27 people have died as a result of the virus and an additional 16 residents tested positive along with five staff members.
Humber River Hospital will now run Toronto’s Villa Colombo Homes for the Aged for the time being. For weeks, the hospital worked with the long-term care home in an attempt to stop the virus from spreading, according to the government.
An emergency order was issued by the government in May which allowed it to temporarily assign managers to homes struggling to contain outbreaks.
The government has since temporarily appointed hospitals to manage multiple homes.
