Without any explanation, the Ontario govt deleted more than 1,200 previously listed available ICU beds (May 1 to Oct. 22, 2020) from its own data on Jan. 7, 2022. By doing so, it now appears that Ontario has a net gain of 331 available ICU beds from 2012 ICU beds May 1, 2020, to 2,343 ICU beds reported for Jan. 13, 2022.
Here is today’s table of ICU bed availability in Ontario.
We previously reported, Dec. 26, 2021, about the Ontario govt’s questionable use of a budget set at $51 billion to respond to Covid-19 and questioned what happened to the availability of 1,114 adult ICU beds from May 13, 2020, to Dec. 24, 2021.
It appears the govt is covering up a major gaffe created by the mismanagement of $51 billion in budgeted pandemic funds with a net result of a loss of ICU beds nearly 2 years into a supposed pandemic Isee chart below) and by contributing to the province’s healthcare staffing crisis through the allowance of unconstitutional and coercive vaccine mandates allowing unvaccinated healthcare workers to be fired.
Using the WayBack Machine archive, the previous ICU bed data was available until Jan. 6, 2022.
