There have been 163 new COVID-19 infections in Ontario overnight to 34,016—a 0.5 per cent increase over Tuesday’s total, when 216 cases were added. Ontario has recorded fewer than 200 new cases in eight of the past ten days. 12 Deaths were recorded in the same period.
“With 229 more resolved, there are now also 66 fewer active cases in the province,” Ontario’s Health Minister Christine Elliott said in a tweet Wednesday morning. The number of patients who have recovered from the virus continues to outpace the number of new cases reported daily. As of today, 86 per cent of all confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario are resolved. “
Of the province’s 34 public health units, 30 reported five or fewer new cases today, which represents a “new high,” according to Elliott. “That’s welcome news as we continue to safely and gradually reopen the province,” she said.
23,000 tests were conducted since the last report.
