Here’s an update on COVID-19 cases in Ontario as well as in the greater Kawarthas region.
Ontario is reporting 270 new cases today — the lowest daily increase since September 16 when 293 cases were reported. Most of the cases are in Toronto (47), Waterloo (44), Peel (42), and York (22). The seven-day average of daily cases has decreased by 25 to 334.
Hospitalizations have decreased by 5 to 261, although more than 10% of hospitals did not submit data for the daily bed census so the actual number of hospitalizations may be higher. Patients in ICUs have fallen by 10 to 323, and patients on ventilators have decreased by 6 to 202. Ontario is reporting 3 new deaths today, with no deaths in long-term care homes.
Almost 12.7 million vaccine doses have been administered, an increase of 118,625 since yesterday, with 86% of Ontario’s total population now having received at least one dose. Over 2.9 million people have been fully vaccinated, with 98,420 people receiving their second dose yesterday, representing over 20% of the total population.
