According to the Ministry of Long-Term Care, there have been 1,648 deaths reported among residents and patients in long-term care homes across Ontario, which is an increase of six deaths, and there are 112 current outbreaks. Seven health-care workers in long-term care homes have died.

Ontario officials have said there may be a discrepancy between overall deaths and deaths at long-term care homes due to how the province’s health database system, called iPHIS, is tracking data and how the Ministry of Long-Term Care is tracking data.

The ministry also indicated there are currently 1,154 confirmed cases among long-term care residents and 978 cases among staff.

Health-care workers in Ontario account for 4,730 of the total reported cases, which is almost 17 per cent of the infected population.

The newly reported numbers are valid as of 2 p.m. Sunday for Toronto and Ottawa public health units and 4 p.m. for the rest of the province.
