Ontario is today reporting 3,732 new cases of COVID-19 and 23 more deaths related to the virus.

The number of cases is higher than Saturday’s total, although the province also saw a drop in virus-related hospitalizations and admissions to intensive care units.

Provincial figures show 1,961 people are hospitalized with COVID-19, including 875 in intensive care and 615 on a ventilator.

Health Minister Christine Elliott said there were 1,198 new cases in Toronto, 797 in Peel Region, 306 in York Region, 237 in Hamilton and 232 in Durham Region.

The province will expand access to COVID-19 vaccines across the province starting this week.

All adults 18 and older living in 114 specific postal codes designated as virus hotspots can reserve their vaccines through the provincial portal starting at 8 a.m. on Monday.

And reservations will be open to all residents 50 and over starting Thursday, as well as those with high-risk health conditions.

Health Minister Christine Elliott said the expansion was possible with a more regular supply of COVID-19 vaccines.

Meanwhile, Quebec is today reporting 1,006 new COVID-19 infections as well as nine new deaths and a continuing decline in hospitalizations linked to the virus.

The province says all of the deaths occurred in the past month, with eight occurring between April 25 and April 30 and one before April 25.

Hospitalizations fell for a fifth consecutive day, with the number of patients declining from four to 574 and the number in intensive care from two to 157.
