There are 901 people currently hospitalized with COVID-19 in the province, including 335 patients in intensive care. There are 226 people on ventilators.

Ontario has administered 6,987 doses of the vaccine since its last daily update, with 386,171 vaccines given in total as of 8 p.m. the previous night. The province says 106,163 people have completed their vaccinations, which means they’ve had both doses.

Locally, Health Minister Christine Elliott says 421 cases are in Toronto, 256 in Peel Region and 130 in York Region.

Meanwhile, 10 more residents in long-term care have died for a total of 3,669 since the pandemic began, in the latest report released by the province.

Ontario is reporting five more LTC homes in outbreak, for a total of 213 or 34 per cent of the long-term-care homes in the province.

Since the pandemic began, 11 staff members in Ontario’s long-term care homes have died due to the virus, according to 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.
