Of the 10 virus-related deaths reported today, six occurred within the last month and four occurred more than a month ago. The fatalities were only logged now due to data cleaning, according to the Ministry of Health.

Another 794 people recovered from the virus in the past 24 hours, resulting in 5,583 active cases across the province.

A total of 33,303 tests were processed yesterday, producing a positivity rate of 1.9 per cent, down from 2.5 per cent seven days ago, according to the ministry.

Of the latest cases, 126 are children between zero and 11 years old, 65 are individuals between 12 and 19 years old, 232 are between 20 and 39, 149 are between 40 and 59, 56 are between 60 and 79 and 11 are 80 and older.

There are 323 people receiving treatment in Ontario hospitals for the virus, with 178 in intensive care units and 128 breathing with the help of a ventilator.

Of those patients in ICUs, 171 are not fully vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status and seven are fully vaccinated.

To date, there have been over 583,275 lab-confirmed coronavirus cases and 567,994 recoveries in the province since Jan. 2020.

So far, over 85 per cent of Ontarians aged 12 years and older have received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 80 per cent have received two doses and are considered fully vaccinated.

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