Saskatchewan will be transferring six COVID-19 patients to Ontario over the next 72 hours as the Prairie province struggles to deal with record-breaking numbers of intensive care patients.
One patient will be transferred Monday, with the other five expected by end of day Wednesday, according to the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA).
Premier Scott Moe said planning for transferring patients has been going on for “a number of days” and that patients will be transferred to ensure they receive “the very best possible care that they can.”
Additional out-of-province support that may be required beyond Wednesday is being finalized, according to the SHA.
