Ontario recoveries continue to increase
A total of 22,484 people have recovered from COVID-19 in Ontario, which according to Johns Hopkins University & Medicine, pushes the national total for recoveries past 50,000.
However Ontario still saw the total number of cases in the province reach 28,709 as 446 new cases were reported since Monday. On Monday evening, it was discovered that 700 positive cases in Ontario, in the Greater Toronto Area, went unreported to the correct public health region, as there was a mixup in which hospital was responsible for doing so.

There have also been 17 more deaths, bringing the total number of deaths in the province to 2,293.
