It is the biggest single-day jump in cases in the city since the outbreak began.
The ages, gender, hospital location, and transmission source is listed as “pending” for all of the new cases, with the patients all reported to be in self-isolation.
The news comes after two new cases were confirmed in Ottawa on Saturday.
Meanwhile, provincial health officials announced a total of 39 new cases in Ontario Sunday morning, bringing the provincial total to 142, which marked the biggest single-day jump in the province.
The transmission source was listed as “pending” for all but one of the new cases Sunday morning.
The Ministry of Health told Global News the province still has no confirmed cases of community transmission, though “pending” means they are still gathering information.
Concerned about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Health officials say the risk for Canadians is low.
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing – very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. And if you get sick, stay at home.
