The enrollment of COVID-19 patients in Ontario’s intensive care units (ICUs) is higher than the previous epidemic, a state agency that monitors hospitals said Wednesday, with a further 2,333 cases reported in the province.
According to Critical Care Services Ontario (CCSO), which combines daily internal reports for hospitals and health organizations, there are currently 421 patients in ICUs in the province. That number includes the 32 people admitted on Tuesday, CCSO 46 said after a one-day registration on Monday.
The previous peak of 420 came in mid-January, during the height of the second wave of the epidemic.
According to the latest data, COVID-19 patients require about two weeks of critical care on average.
(You may notice that the ICU figures reported by the CCSO often differ from those in the Ministry of Health. COVID-19 Dashboard. This is because once a patient stops testing positive for the virus, the ministry removes them from its number, even if the patient is under critical care with complications. Therefore, the number of CCSOs is considered to be the most accurate calculation of the condition of hospitals.)

The increase in ICU admissions is largely driven by the prevalence of anxiety types in the province. Ontario’s COVID-19 Scientific Advisory Schedule, a panel of experts advising the government on its epidemiology, currently accounts for 69 percent of variants in new epidemics.
