A total of 228 people are currently receiving care in an Ontario intensive care unit (ICU) with COVID-19 on Sunday, as the province continues efforts to control the spread of the virus.
That’s according to new data released by the provincial government on Sunday.
The number of people in ICU dropped on Sunday compared to numbers reported a day earlier.
On Saturday 722 people were in an Ontario hospital, 232 were in an ICU.
A total of 1,631 new cases were reported, however, experts caution that is likely an undercount due to the more stringent COVID-19 testing rules implemented in the province.
In a tweet Sunday morning Ontario’s Health Minister Christine Elliott said hospitalization data was “currently unavailable.”
Elliott also said to date, 31,882,192 COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in Ontario: “92.7 per cent of Ontarians 12+ have one dose and 90.7 per cent have two doses.”
