Here’s an update on COVID-19 cases in Ontario as well as in the greater Kawarthas region.
Ontario is reporting 210 new cases today, the lowest daily increase since September 11 when 232 cases were reported. The seven-day average of daily cases has decreased by 8 to 267.
Most of today’s cases are in Toronto (37), Waterloo (26), Grey Bruce (25), and Peel (15).
Hospitalizations have increased by 15 to 218, but more than 10% of hospitals did not submit data for the daily bed census yesterday for this report so the actual number of hospitalizations may be higher.
The number of patients in ICUs has decreased by 2 to 287 and the number of patients on ventilators remains unchanged at 191. Ontario is reporting 3 new deaths, with none in long-term care homes.
Over 14.2 million vaccine doses have been administered, an increase of 180,369 from yesterday, with almost 82% of Ontario’s total population now having received at least one dose. More than 4.3 million people have been fully vaccinated, with 161,149 people receiving their second dose yesterday, representing over 29% of the total population.
