370 new infections, seven-day average drops – .


Ontario is reporting 370 new cases of COVID-19 as the province’s seven-day average declines even more.

The province’s seven-day moving average now stands at 379, down from 427 so far last week. Ontario reported 373 new COVID-19 infections on Saturday.

There was one additional COVID-19-related death in the previous 24-hour period, according to the province.

There are 247 cases in individuals who are not fully vaccinated or whose vaccination status is unknown, while 123 are in individuals who are fully vaccinated.

With 25,328 tests processed in the past 24 hours, the health ministry says the province’s positivity rate stands at around 1.2%, which is the lowest test positivity rate since August. .

There are at least 138 people in Ontario hospitals who currently have COVID-19, including 137 in intensive care units. Many hospitals do not report patient data on weekends, which means the numbers given are likely underreported.

In Ontario, 22,385,190 doses of vaccine have been administered to date. Almost 88% of eligible Ontarians have one dose of COVID-19 vaccine and 83% have two doses.

Premier Doug Ford on Friday announced the province’s plan to drop all pandemic restrictions by March 2022.

“It’s a prudent plan,” Ford said. “It slowly lifts public health measures over time, allowing us to monitor any impact on our hospitals and communities. It gives Ontarians and businesses the certainty they need to develop their own plans.
