COVID-19 deaths at Toronto long-term care home hits 71

TORONTO — A long-term care home in Toronto has hit 71 COVID-19 deaths after three more residents succumbed.

Tendercare Living Centre in the city’s east end now has one of the worst records in the province.

Nevertheless, the provincial government says it is confident North York General Hospital can manage the outbreak.

The province says the hospital has offered assurances that the needs of Tendercare residents are being met.

Dozens of other residents are still fighting the disease.

The province said last month North York General would help stabilize the situation.
