Here’s an update on COVID-19 cases in Ontario as well as in the greater Kawarthas region.
Ontario is reporting 784 new cases today, with the 7-day average of daily cases decreasing by 4 to 712 — the 5th day in a row the average has decreased.
Of Ontario’s 34 health units, 1 is reporting a triple-digit increase — Toronto (147) — with 16 reporting double-digit increases — Windsor-Essex (73), Peel (67), York (65), Ottawa (57), Hamilton (57), Niagara (45), Durham (42), Simcoe Muskoka (37), Halton (29), Middlesex-London (22), Chatham-Kent (19), Waterloo (19), Eastern Ontario (16), Brant (13), Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph (12), and Southwestern (11) — and 6 reporting no new cases at all.
Of the new cases, 69% are people who have not been fully vaccinated (61% have not received any doses and 8% have received only one dose) and 23% are people who have been fully vaccinated with two doses, with the vaccination status unknown for 8% of the cases because of a missing or invalid health card number.
The 7-day average case rate is 11.02 per 100,000 for unvaccinated people, 7.41 per 100,000 for partially vaccinated people, and 1.62 per 100,000 for fully vaccinated people.
Hospitalizations have decreased by 74 to 289, but the actual number of hospitalizations is likely higher as more than 10% of hospitals did not provide numbers for the daily bed census yesterday. The number of ICU patients has increased by 4 to 184 and the number of ICU patients on ventilators has decreased by 7 to 107. Ontario is reporting 4 new COVID-related deaths.
Almost 21.17 million vaccine doses have been administered, an increase of 29,182 from yesterday, with over 10.17 million people fully vaccinated, an increase of 17,449 from yesterday, representing almost 68.8% of Ontario’s total population.
