Ontario reports 804 in hospital with COVID-19, 165 in intensive care
COVID-19 hospitalizations are up in Ontario today, to 855 from yesterday’s 804.
The number of COVID-19 patients in intensive care, meanwhile, dropped by two to 165.
There were seven new COVID-19 deaths reported.
The province recorded 3,233 new cases of COVID-19 today, but Ontario’s top doctor has said the actual number is likely 10 times higher than the daily tally since access to PCR testing is limited.
Wastewater monitoring suggests COVID-19 cases have been on the rise since last month.
About 10 per cent of Ontario’s long-term care homes currently report active outbreaks of COVID-19.
