Ontario Premier Doug Ford is expected to provide a COVID-19 update on how the province is responding to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

On Wednesday, Ford said that the province’s legislature has adjourned after passing six bills in a "historic session" that saw cross-partisan collaboration in the fight against COVID-19 on Wednesday.

Ontario legislature has passed a total of 18 pieces of legislation since February and has now adjourned until September 14.

The Premier, joined by the Government House Leader Paul Calandra, thanked all parties and MPPs for coming together and "getting the job done."

Ford was asked about Cambridge MPP Belinda Karahalios who will be no longer a member of the Progressive Conservative caucus after voting against the party’s proposed COVID-19 recovery bill.

Ford said that he has a "phenomenal relationship with her" and that he wishes her all the best.

Ontario reported 165 new cases of the novel coronavirus and two new deaths on Wednesday, bringing the provincial total to 38,107 cases and 2,755 deaths.

A total of 33,812 Ontarians have recovered from the virus, which accounts for 88 per cent of cases.
