New CVID cases in Ontario ticked up above the 200 mark for the first time in six days—with yesterday’s total sitting at 206. There were 31 deaths–the highest toll since June 6,
“While this is the first time the province is reporting a daily new case count above 200 in six days, we shouldn’t draw too many conclusions from one day’s data,” Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott wrote on Twitter.
As well, 218 more cases in the province were considered to be resolved as of Saturday, continuing almost two weeks where recoveries exceeded new cases, bringing the provincial total number of recovered patients to 28,468.
The number of COVID patients in hospital continues to drop—now sitting at 333 cases, 80 of whom are in ICU and 63 on a ventilator.
Daily testing numbers remain high with 27,387 being conducted within the last-recorded 24-hour period.
