Predictions for Ottawa: 1 Week 

A simple approximation with a polynomial of order 6 using least squares method; R² = 0.99; computed daily based on new data available gives the following predictions:

Predicted number of total detected cases/deaths October 4: 4509/287

The numbers above are based on official detected cases only; there are many more in the community. This estimation, although imprecise, uses average spread rates, mortality rates, average response of the medical system.
