Here’s an update on COVID-19 cases in Ontario as well as in the greater Kawarthas region.
Ontario is reporting 127 new COVID-19 cases today, with 6 of Ontario’s 34 health units reporting double-digit increases — Toronto (34), Waterloo (17), York (14), Peel (10), Grey Bruce (10), and Halton (10) — and 14 health units reporting no new cases at all.
The seven-day average of daily cases has decreased by 3 to 152.
Hospitalizations have increased by 30 to 145, but part of this increase may be a result of underreporting by more than 10% of hopsitals to the daily bed census yesterday. The number of ICU patients has decreased by 2 to 149 and the number of patients on ventilators has increased by 4 to 98.
Ontario is reporting 2 new COVID-related deaths, with none in long-term care homes.
Over 18.3 million vaccine doses have been administered, an increase of 132,963 from yesterday, with almost 97% of Ontario’s total population now having received at least one dose. Over 8 million people have been fully vaccinated, an increase of 115,537 from yesterday, representing over 54% of Ontario’s total population.
