Ontario reported 2,005 new cases of the novel coronavirus Sunday, bringing the total number of cases in the province to 171,416.

“Locally, there are 572 new cases in Toronto, 331 in Peel, 207 in York Region and 140 in Windsor-Essex County,” Health Minister Christine Elliott said.

A total of 147,178 COVID-19 cases are considered resolved, which is 85.9 per cent of all confirmed cases.

Eighteen additional deaths were also announced, bringing the provincial death toll to 4,377.

Nearly 41,800 additional tests were completed. Ontario has now completed a total of 7,745,313 tests and 27,278 remain under investigation.

The province indicated that the positivity rate for the last day was 5.1 per cent, which is up from Saturday, when it was 3.8 per cent, and up from last Sunday’s, when it was 3.6 per cent.

There are at least 823 people hospitalized with the virus (up by 68), with 285 in intensive care (down by one) and 194 on a ventilator (up by seven).

However, the province noted that more than 10 per cent of hospitals did not submit their daily bed census for Sunday’s report — as is often the case on weekends — likely causing the reported number of hospitalizations to be lower than it actually is.
