No newly-reported deaths in Ontario
On Monday, the province reported that the death toll related to COVID-19 remained flat at 2,689. It’s the first time there have been zero reported deaths in a day for Ontario since March.
The Ministry of Health did report 154 new cases, however, a slight increase compared to the amount of cases Ontario had recorded a day before. Most of the new cases were in the Toronto and Peel regions. Today, 29 of Ontario’s 34 public health units reported fewer than five new cases, including Windsor-Essex, which was recently the focus of scrutiny due to a farm-related outbreak. Only Toronto, Peel and York regions reported more than ten new cases.
The number of Ontario residents who require hospital care continues to decline. There are 118 people in hospital with the COVID-19 virus, with 36 in intensive care and 21 requiring ventilators.
There are 34 long-term care homes in the province with an active outbreak, one fewer than the day before.
