Ontario Reports 466 New Coronavirus Cases, 11 More Deaths – .

Ontario reported fewer than 500 new cases of COVID-19 and 11 more deaths on Tuesday as the number of cases continues to gradually decline.

Provincial health officials recorded 466 new infections today, a notable drop from 613 on Monday and 574 a week ago.

Of the latest cases, 277 are unvaccinated, 27 are partially vaccinated, 119 are fully vaccinated and 43 have unknown vaccination status.

About 30 percent of all Ontarians are unvaccinated, including children under 12 who are not yet eligible for a vaccine in the province.

Ontario recorded 653 new cases on Sunday, 640 on Saturday and 727 on Friday.

The seven-day moving average now stands at 606, down from 710 a week ago.

Of the 11 deaths reported today, nine were in the past month and two were over a month ago.

The deaths were recorded late due to data cleansing, according to the health ministry.

The number of deaths linked to the virus in the province stands at 9,715.

Another 819 people recovered from the virus yesterday, resulting in 5,262 active cases across the province.

Ontario labs have processed 23,785 COVID-19 tests in the past 24 hours, resulting in a positivity rate of 2.1%, up from 2.4% a week ago, according to the ministry.

Of the latest cases, 87 are in children aged 0-11, 52 are in individuals aged 12-19, 163 are aged 20-39, 115 are aged 40-59, 38 are aged 60 at 79 and 11 are 80 and over.

Today, Ontario also reported 280 new cases of COVID-19 across the province’s 4,844 public schools.

In the Greater Toronto Area, 138 new cases were recorded in Toronto, 39 in Peel Region, 21 in York Region, 19 in Durham and 18 in Halton.

Elsewhere in southern Ontario, Ottawa has reported 31 new cases, while 31 have been recorded in Windsor-Essex and 25 in Hamilton.

The ministry says there are 315 COVID-19 patients in Ontario hospitals and 180 in intensive care units.

Of those in intensive care units, Health Minister Christine Elliott said 172 are not fully vaccinated or have unknown vaccination status and eight are fully vaccinated.

To date, there have been 585,007 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases and 570,030 recoveries since January 2020.

So far, nearly 86% of Ontarians aged 12 and over have received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 80% have received two doses and are considered fully immunized.

The latest figures come as Ontario’s COVID-19 Science Advisory Table prepares to release new “best and worst case scenarios” projections today.

The numbers used in this story can be found in the Ontario Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 Daily Epidemiological Summary. The number of cases for a city or region may differ slightly from what is reported by the province, as local units report the numbers at different times.
