Covit-19 Ontario: More than 3,000 new infections reported as ICU admission exceeds 500

TORONTO – Ontario reports more than 3,000 new cases of COVID-19 as the number of patients undergoing intensive care with the disease exceeds 500 for the first time.

The 3,065 infections reported on Tuesday were slightly higher than the total added to 2,938 on Monday.

This brings the seven-day average to 2,861 cases in Ontario. This time last week it was 2,207.

There are currently 510 patients with COVID-19 in the ICU, which is not seen throughout the epidemic in Ontario hospitals. Of those patients, 310 are currently breathing with the help of a ventilator.

Labs in the province executed 37,541 COVID-19 tests in the last 24 hours, generating a positive rate of 8.9 percent. Finally, the province’s positive rate reached 9.4 percent in early January.

Since the outbreak, 367,602 COVID-19 infections have been reported in the province, including 333,576 recurrences and 7,458 deaths.

Eight of those deaths were reported in the last 24 hours, the health ministry said.

Currently, there are 26,568 active cases of the corona virus novel in Ontario.

Where are the new COVID-19 cases?

Most of the cases reported on Tuesday were in Toronto (955), Peel Region (561) and York Region (320).

The Niagara, Halton and Durham regions and Hamilton reported three-digit case numbers on Tuesday.

On Monday, top doctors in Toronto, the Peel Region and Ottawa called on the Ontario government to issue a provincial-level shelter order in an effort to curb the rise of COVID-19, which the province’s own scientific advisory table recommended last week.

The government has avoided introducing such an order due to “very bad effect on both children and adults”. As the case numbers increased, Ontario first noticed the order to stay home following the Christmas holidays.

On Saturday, Ontario entered a four-week provincial-wide “shutdown” that still allows for non-essential activities such as indoor retail shopping.

This is an important message. There are a lot to come.


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