Ontario health officials have confirmed the province’s seventh case of coronavirus, known as COVID-19.

The province’s chief medical officer of health Dr. David Williams said the patient is a man in his fifties who arrived in Toronto on Tuesday after recently travelling to Iran.

He went to Sunnybrook hospital the following day and was cared for using “all appropriate precautions.”

“The established infection prevention and control protocols were initiated; the patient was cared for at the hospital using all appropriate precautions, including being isolated as he was being tested for COVID-19,” said a news release issued by the province Friday morning.

Health officials say the man was discharged home the same day and went into self-isolation where he remains.

They say Toronto Public Health is actively engaged in contact tracing and case management.

There are currently four positive cases of the virus in the province. However, officials say the risk of being infected in Ontario still remains very low.

Dr. Williams will be joined by Dr. Eileen de Villa, Medical Officer of Health for Toronto, to provide an update on the situation at 3 p.m. at the Queen’s Park media studio.
