Ontario Today Reports 1,184 New Coronavirus Cases, No New Deaths – .


For the third day in a row, Ontario is reporting more than 1,000 new cases of COVID-19, with today’s daily number of cases reaching its highest level since the end of May.

Provincial health officials recorded 1,184 new infections today, up from 1,053 on Saturday and 1,031 on Friday.

This is the highest single-day tally since May 28, when 1,273 cases were confirmed in Ontario.

The seven-day moving average of new cases now stands at 926, down from 761 a week ago.

Of the cases confirmed today, 557 involve unvaccinated people, 22 involve partially vaccinated people, 536 cases involve fully immunized people and 69 involve people with unknown vaccination status.

This means that unvaccinated people account for about 47 percent of all new infections, although they only make up about 20 percent of Ontario’s population. About 76% of the province’s population is fully immune to COVID-19.

Ontario has seen a notable increase in the number of COVID-19 patients in intensive care in the past seven days. According to the Department of Health, there are currently 164 COVID-19 patients in intensive care, up from 135 patients in intensive care last week.

While the province did not release data on the immunization status of COVID-19 patients in the ICU on Sunday, Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott said that 136 of 160 COVID-patients 19 in the ICU at that time were not fully immunized or had unknown vaccine status while only 24 were fully immunized.

With 31,735 tests processed in the past 24 hours, authorities report a province-wide positivity rate of 3.2%, unchanged from last Sunday.

The number of known active cases of COVID-19 in Ontario reached 8,115 on Sunday, up from 6,484 last week.

The public health units with the most new infections today are Toronto (152), Simcoe-Muskoka (96), York Region (88), Windsor (86), Peel Region (81), Ottawa (54) .

Region of Peel and Hamilton reported their first cases of the Omicron variant on Saturday and Toronto confirmed its first three cases of the variant of concern on Friday.

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.
