Health officials in Ontario logged less than 450 new infections after several days of case counts above 500. Specifically, there were 447 new infections on Monday, this comes after the 590 cases on Thursday, 574 on Friday, 502 on Saturday, and 530 on Sunday.
Last week the rolling seven-day average in Ontario was 735 and now it stands at 503. The Ministry of Health said the positivity rate increased to 2.8 per cent on Monday as there were 13,588 tests processed. Hospitals across Ontario currently occupy 384 people with COVID-19 and at least 409 patients are in intensive care. These numbers could be underestimated as not all hospitals reported their data this past weekend.
The majority of the cases are reported to be concentrated in hot spot areas in the Greater Toronto Area. Officials found 110 new cases in Toronto, 61 in Peel Region, 29 in Durham Region, and 11 in York Region. The province has also confirmed an additional 458 new cases of B.1.1.7 (U.K. variant) in Ontario.
