The City of Toronto’s medical officer of health reported 153 new cases, for a total of 8,097. That includes 5,851 people who have recovered and 648 deaths.

There are 126 institutional outbreaks around the city, which includes one at Toronto Western Hospital. At least five people who are part of the hospital’s ER team have tested positive for COVID-19. The facility is now cleaning the space and providing tests for medical staff who worked between April 20 and May 13.

A spokesperson for the University Health Network, which oversees Toronto Western Hospital, said the risk to patients is “very low” since all healthcare workers wear personal protective equipment.
