Coronavirus: Toronto creates mobile testing clinics from decommissioned TTC buses | FULL

Toronto Mayor John Tory spoke on Wednesday about the cityโ€™s effort to ramp up COVID-19 testing by bringing decommissioned Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) buses back in service to act as mobile testing units.

The midsections of six decommissioned TTC buses have seen the seats removed and swapped with the various tools of the trade used for coronavirus testing.

Tory said the buses would be assigned to areas that donโ€™t have nearby testing sites, and can test up to 100 people a shift.

Ontario reported 1,890 new cases of coronavirus on Wednesday, bringing the provincial total to 132,800.

The death toll in the province has risen to 3,836 as 28 more deaths were reported.
