Ontario Health officials report 2005 new COVID cases. That is a drop of more than 200 cases from the totals last week. It is the lowest single-day total since December 13. Also for the first time in two weeks the number of resolved cases was equal to the number of new cases-2005. There were 18 deaths reported. There are 823 hospital cases. Which, with the exception of yesterday’s number , is also the lowest in 2 weeks. Weekend and holiday reporting has been uneven in Ontario, so the true picture might not ben known until later this week.
