Ontario reported 99 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Monday, bringing the total number of cases in the province to 40,745.
Monday’s increase is similar to the reporting over the weekend; Saturday saw 106 while Sunday had 81.
“Locally, 29 of 34 public health units are reporting five or fewer cases, with 21 of them reporting no new cases,” Health Minister Christine Elliott said on Twitter.
Twenty-six cases are from Toronto, 25 from Peel Region, 19 from Ottawa, eight from Waterloo and seven from York Region.
Over 25,000 additional tests have been processed, Elliott said.
No new deaths were reported on Monday for the second day in a row, keeping the provincial death toll at 2,789.
The reported number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 is 32 (down by five), with 16 in intensive care (down by two) and 10 on a ventilator (up by one).
The province notes that not all hospitals have reported patient statuses for Aug. 15 — as is often the case on weekends — likely causing the reported number of hospitalizations to be lower than it actually is.
The newly reported numbers are valid as of 2 p.m. Sunday for Toronto, Ottawa and London and 4 p.m. for the rest of the province.
Here is a breakdown of Ontario’s cases by age and gender:
- 19,029 people are male
- 21,424 people are female
- 2,527 people are 19 and under
- 12,614 people are 20 to 39
- 12,201 people are 40 to 59
- 7,344 people are 60 to 79
- 6,053 people are 80 and over
The province notes that not all cases have a reported age or gender.
