(CBC) — Windsor Regional Hospital in southwestern Ontario has seen a sudden surge of young patients with severe respiratory issues.
Windsor Regional Hospital CEO David Musyj told CBC Windsor Morning host Tony Doucette that more than 10 children have been treated since Thursday, so the hospital is restricting visitation in its pediatric ward. Only adults aged 18 or older are allowed access.
Musyj said some children are being discharged, while others have been admitted. One child was sent to London, Ont., for further treatment.

"It’s not typical to see that many suffering from the same issues all at once," Musyj said.
