Online vigil to mark one year since Toronto’s first death related to COVID-19's Profile



It has been one year since Toronto was struck by its first death related to COVID-19.

The City of Toronto is holding a virtual ceremony Sunday evening. It’s expected to start around 7:30.

Flags outside city buildings will be at half-mast.

As of Saturday, 2,753 deaths have been linked to COVID-19 in Toronto, out of the nearly 102,000 people who have contracted the virus.

“Proclaiming today the day of Remembrance for Lives Lost to COVID-19 in Toronto,” said Mayor John Tory. “Tragically, more than 2,700 Toronto residents have died due to COVID-19 in the past year, we mourn the loss of life and turn to one another in support through this grief.”
