Ontario Records 535 New COVID-19 Cases, Two More Deaths – .

TORONTO – Ontario has recorded fewer than 500 cases of COVID-19 for the seventh day in a row.

Health officials reported 443 new infections on Sunday, bringing the province’s seven-day daily average of COVID-19 cases to around 428.

That’s significantly lower than the average of 524 a week ago.

According to the Department of Health, 231 of Sunday’s cases have been identified in unvaccinated individuals. Twenty cases were found in those who were only partially vaccinated, officials said, while 155 were in people who received both doses of a vaccine.

Thirty-seven cases involved people whose vaccination status was unknown.

With just under 27,400 COVID-19 tests processed in the past 24 hours, the health ministry says the province’s positivity rate is around 1.4%.

At least 164 people are being treated for the disease in intensive care units (ICUs) across Ontario. Ninety-three of these patients breathe using a ventilator.

Vaccination data is not available on Sundays due to a lack of reporting from hospitals on weekends.

Authorities have removed a previously reported COVID-19 death from its total tally due to data cleansing. The total number of deaths linked to the disease since March 2020 is now 9,813.

There have been 594,862 laboratory-confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus in Ontario since the start of the pandemic, including deaths and recoveries.


According to the province’s epidemiological report, there are 80 new infections in Peel Region, 58 in Toronto and 32 in York Region.

There are 11 other public health units reporting more than 10 new cases of COVID-19. Three municipalities are not reporting any new infections.

Among the cases reported on Sunday, 128 concern people under the age of 20. There were 136 infections in people aged 20 to 39 and 97 in people aged 40 to 69.

Eighty-one cases have been recorded in people over 60 years old.

154 more cases of the Delta variant have been identified in lab-confirmed COVID-19 tests, according to the province.

This brings the total number of Delta variant cases to 19,799.

In the past 24 hours, the province has administered just over 23,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. The Department of Health says about 87.4% of eligible Ontarians aged 12 and over have received at least one dose, while 83.1% are considered fully immunized.


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.
