(Visiontimes.com) —More than 40 people have tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) after attending a birthday party at a restaurant in Windsor, Ontario that was protected by vaccine passports. Despite Ontario already having a nearly 90 percent vaccination rate, media and health officials nonetheless used the opportunity to complain about low vaccine acceptance while calling for more injections.
A large birthday party took place at Elite Restaurant in Windsor on Nov. 18, according to Dec. 3 reporting by CTV News. The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU), the area’s local health authority, said 42 people who attended the event have registered positive PCR tests.
“It is the most number of people who have tested positive in any one restaurant in Windsor-Essex since the beginning of the pandemic,” Shanker Nesathurai, Acting Chief Medical Officer of Health, told CTV.
WECHU issued an alert, adding the restaurant to the Exposure List. It now joins a Home Hardware and the local sporting arena as the only three entities listed.
