Ontario health minister denies political decision behind labelling Ottawa’s K2V area a COVID-19 'hot spot'​

OTTAWA -- Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott is denying politics was behind the decision to label a part of western Ottawa a COVID-19 "hot spot,” despite data showing the rate of infections in the area is lower than other parts of the city.

Last week, Ontario named three forward sortation areas (FSAs)—the first three digits of a postal code—as hot spots in Ottawa: K1T, K1V, and K2V.

While K1T and K1V contain several neighbourhoods previously identified by Ottawa Public Health as priority areas for vaccines, none of OPH's priority neighbourhoods are in the K2V FSA.

  • K1T – Emerald Woods - Sawmill Creek, and Greenboro East
  • K1V – Ledbury - Heron Gate - Ridgemont and Hunt Club East - Western Community
  • K2V – no high-priority neighbourhoods
Elliott told reporters Tuesday that the hot spots areas were originally identified on the basis of historic data.

"In the case of the Ottawa area (K2V), we're trying to be proactive because we know there are a number of congregate settings there, in terms of retirement homes, long-term care homes, seniors' apartments and so on, where we know we need to get in there before an outbreak happens," she said.

However, there are no long-term care homes or retirement homes in the K2V area. Vaccinations are also complete at all long-term care homes and retirement homes in Ottawa. Second doses for residents were completed in long-term care homes in February and in retirement homes in March.

Additionally, the province is booking vaccine appointments for anyone in Ottawa 60 years of age or older, regardless of their postal code.

Elliott stressed that the decision to identify the area as a hot spot was made based on available evidence and not on politics. The K2V FSA is within the riding of Progressive Conservative MPP Merrilee Fullerton, the Minister of Long-Term Care.

"Absolutely no political motivation whatsoever," Elliott said. "This was decided on the basis of the clinical evidence and the recommendations of Dr. (Vera) Etches, the Chief Medical Officer of Health, and the Public Health Measures Table."

Data from the non-profit research institute ICES Ontario show that the K2V FSA has seen much lower rates of COVID-19 deaths and infections compared to the other two identified hot spots and some other FSAs in Ottawa that were not named as hot spots.

K1T had the highest rate of COVID-19 cases at 2.54 cases per 100 population as of April 4. K1V is tied with K1W (Chapel Hill South, Orléans) for third overall in Ottawa at 2.24 cases per 100. K2V is 11th on the list with 1.66 cases per 100.

Other parts of Ottawa with higher incidence rates include K1N (ByWard Market, Lower Town, Sandy Hill), K1K (Overbrook), and K1G (Elmvale Acres, Hunt Club).

When it comes to the rate of hospitalizations and deaths, K2V is much lower on the list at 0.35 hospitalizations/deaths per 1,000. The highest FSA in the city is K1P, in the heart of downtown Ottawa, which has seen 3.95 hospitalizations/deaths per 1,000. K1T's rate is 1.00 per 1,000 while K1V's rate is 0.69 per 1,000.

Ottawa South Liberal MPP John Fraser raised the issue in Question Period on Monday, asking how K2V was chosen despite its low rate of transmission.

"A postal code region in Kanata, a riding of a government minister, is deemed a hot spot, despite lower rates of hospitalization and death than some 300 other neighbourhoods in Ontario," he said.

Elliott responded to say the government's decisions were based on transmission records and other evidence.

"Any suggestion that any postal codes were selected for any reason other than the fact that they were hot spots in experiencing high rates of transmission is beneath you," Elliott said in response. "We have been listening to the doctors, we have been watching the transmission records, and we know that those hot spots that we've identified are areas that are having high transmission. That is how the decision about the postal codes that we are selecting receive extra doses of the vaccine."

Employers in 'hot spots' can apply for vaccines

The Ontario government said in a technical briefing on Tuesday that it is working with local public health units to explore the feasibility of workplace vaccination clinics in hot spot areas.

The province says businesses that wish to host an onsite clinic must be within a hot spot area, and must have had a previous COVID-19 outbreak or be at risk of an outbreak. The employer would be responsible for setting up, operating and funding the clinic and would offer shots to workers who cannot work from home as well as people in the local community.

Employers must contact the provincial COVID-19 vaccine task force to inquire about hosting a vaccine clinic.

The Canadian Tire Centre is located in the K2V area and employers such as Lockheed Martin, the Ford Motor Company and IBM have offices there.

这个可能就是加拿大或者民主选举类的腐败,很多当选议员都为了选区搞小九九,虽然没有拿钱,但是腐败也 是铁板钉钉,是以牺牲其他地方为 代价。

以前很多报道,什么执政党在选区修路或者基建,或者政府项目。

似乎质疑方拿出了数据,感染率,住院/死亡等比例排名。

否定方什么数据都没给,只是说:绝对不是政治原因,是根据医生,专家们的建议。。。

K2V 热点现在成为政治话题了。

说自由党有问题的人说, K2V 并没有这么多人感染,把K2V推上前三位,是给保守党添堵。(K2V 是保守党据点),政府反驳说政府是依据感染率的数据和专家建议

说保守党有问题的人说,K2V的部分保粉和相关的人串通想把K2V排成热点,这样在疫苗排队上容易提前打疫苗 (其实就是插队的意思)。
