The Ontario Ministry of Health announced 59 new cases of the new coronavirus in the province Saturday morning, with one of the cases being in the Middlesex-London region.
The Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU) confirmed the local case.
The patient is “a gentleman in his 50s with a recent travel to the U.K.,” said Dr. Alex Summers, associate medical officer of health.
“His symptoms developed on-arrival to Canada… and he’s currently isolated.”
Summers says the health unit continues its investigation into the case.
On Friday, the MLHU confirmed six local cases.
Summers adds its impossible to predict what the future holds for London and area, in terms of how many more cases of COVID-19 will be confirmed.
Provincially, the COVID-19 count sits at 377 as of Saturday morning.
