Ontario reports more than 500 new cases of COVID-19 for fourth consecutive day


For the fourth day in a row, Ontario is reporting more than 500 new COVID-19 infections across the province. The 511 new cases logged Sunday mark a decrease over the 578 reported a day earlier, which was the highest single-day total documented since June 10. Of the cases added today, 350 were recorded in individuals who are unvaccinated and 67 were in those partially vaccinated. The remaining 94 cases were found in fully vaccinated people. Health Minister Christine Elliott said in a tweet that 98 people are currently in hospital with COVID-19 and 116 are being treated in intensive care. She said the discrepancy in patient data, as well as the absence of their vaccination status, is due to a delay in hospital reporting over the weekend. Sunday’s report brings the total number of lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases in Ontario to 555,561. This number includes 542,476 recoveries and 9,418 deaths related to the disease. No news deaths were reported in the last 24-hour period. Ontario’s seven-day average for the number of cases reported stands at 440. For context, last week that number was 261. A week before that, the average was 196.
