Ontario reported 95 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, continuing a trend of relatively low growth in the number of cases in the province this week.

Nineteen of those cases were from Ottawa, according to the province – the only public health unit region in eastern Ontario to report new cases in the past day.

Across Ontario, a new COVID-19 death was reported Thursday as 71 people were in hospital, including 29 in intensive care and 13 people on ventilators. It was the fourth day in a row with less than 100 new cases.

Health Minister Christine Elliott noted that 159 cases of COVID-19 have been resolved since the last report.


Meanwhile, the Calypso water theme park, near Limoges, east of Ottawa, threw in the towel in the summer of 2020 after the provincial government announced further delays in reopening major theme parks. .

“Despite our overall efforts, the Ontario provincial government has not allowed water parks to open this summer,” the company said in a post Thursday on its Facebook page. “Calypso will survive these difficult times and we will be ready to welcome you back in 2021 with a little freshness.”
