Saskatchewan to send six COVID-19 patients to Ontario for intensive care

BY The Canadian Press, Oct 18, 2021 7:12 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Saskatchewan is transferring six COVID-19 patients from its overcrowded intensive care units to Ontario hospitals.

Some are arriving as soon as today.

And Premier Scott Moe is asking the federal government to send help in the form of health-care workers able to work in intensive care settings.

Moe says he appreciates any help Ottawa can provide and realizes that while it may not be a large number of staff, it will be a specialized contingent.

Although Moe says more people are getting vaccinated since the province announced a new proof of vaccination or proof of negative test requirement.
