Ontario Records Fewer Than 100 New Cases Of COVID-19 In Last 2 Days


Ontario has reported less than 100 new daily cases of COVID-19 for two consecutive days, the Department of Health said this morning.Due to the long holiday weekend, figures for Monday and Tuesday have been provided at the same time.

Monday saw 88 newly confirmed infections of the novel coronavirus, while 91 were counted for Tuesday.

Toronto now had the largest number of public health units, with 22. The remaining new cases were scattered mainly in southern Ontario, with most health units in the region reporting fewer than five cases.

Windsor-Essex, which today learned it will remain on Stage 2 of the province’s plan to reopen for the time being, has confirmed nine more cases.

All of the numbers used in this story can be found in the Department of Health’s daily update, which includes data up to 4 p.m. the previous day. The number of cases for a particular region on any given day may differ from what is reported by the local public health unit, which often avoids delays in the provincial system.

Ontario has now recorded a total of 39,628 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the outbreak began in late January. Of these, almost 90% are considered resolved. Another 242 combined cases have been marked as resolved in the past two days, Health Minister Christine Elliott said in a series of tweets.
