Ontario is reporting another 1,023 COVID-19 cases and six more deaths, according to its latest report released Monday morning.
This is the lowest daily increase since five deaths were reported Oct. 28.
The seven-day average is at 1,099 cases daily, or 53 weekly per 100,000. Ontario’s seven-day average for deaths is at 16.3 daily.
The province says 35,015 tests were completed the previous day for a 3.1 per cent positivity rate.
There are 659 people currently hospitalized with COVID-19 in the province, including 280 patients in intensive care. There are 175 people on ventilators.
Ontario has administered 17,424 doses of the vaccine since its last daily update, with 704,695 vaccines given in total as of 8 p.m. the previous night. The province says 263,214 people have completed their vaccinations, which means they’ve had both doses.
Locally, Health Minister Christine Elliott says 280 cases are in Toronto, 182 in Peel Region, 72 in Ottawa and 47 in York Region.
Meanwhile, no residents in long-term care have died, so the total number remains at 3,744 since the pandemic began, in the latest report released by the province.
Ontario is reporting no current outbreaks in long-term-care homes, for a total of 106 or 16.9 per cent of LTC homes in the province.
This data is self-reported by the long-term care homes to the Ministry of Long-Term Care. Daily case and death figures may not immediately match the numbers posted by the local public health units due to lags in reporting time.
