Twenty-eight of Ontario’s 34 public health units reported five or fewer cases, while 18 of those 29 saw no new infections.
Ontario has now recorded a total of 41,813 confirmed cases of the virus since the outbreak began in late January.
At the same time, the number of tests being processed rose from 22,000 yesterday to 28,600 Thursday.
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.
