Ontario data correction removes one COVID-19 case from Ottawa total on Wednesday – .


OTTAWA – Public Health Ontario has removed one case of COVID-19 from its total for Ottawa in what appears to be a data correction. The province reported just one case on Tuesday.

Cases are sometimes removed from the pandemic total when case management investigations reveal that the person who tested positive does not live in the area of ​​a public health unit.

A full local Ottawa Public Health snapshot is expected this afternoon. PHO’s numbers often differ from Public Health Ontario’s because the two health agencies pull data from their respective daily reports at different times of the day.

Across Ontario, authorities have reported 153 new cases and said seven more Ontarians have died from COVID-19. Another 216 cases are considered resolved.

In the region, Public Health Ontario has added a new case in the Hastings Prince Edward Public Health Region and a new case in the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Public Health Region.
