Summary Translation: The Ontario government has announced that it is moving forward with research projects to fight COVID-19, including clinical trials investigating vaccines and treatments. Ontario Premier Doug Ford said, "We've received proposals from every corner of this province and today I am proud to announce that we are moving forward with 15 of the most promising proposals as part of the first phase." Ford provided examples of some of the “ground-breaking” research, which includes vaccine development at the University of Guelph and a proposal by St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton on a new rapid testing method that would enable 6,000 tests per lab a day. He also mentioned a study out of McMaster University that looks at recovered COVID-19 patients and investigates if antibodies remain and continue to fight the virus, as well as a food security project by Western University to study how food retail businesses are impacted by adapting to COVID-19.
