Health Officials in Ontario have just reported fewer than 1,000 new cases of COVID-19 for five straight days. They confirmed exactly 914 new infections of coronavirus on Friday. This comes after the 870 new cases on Thursday, 733 new infections on Wednesday, and 699 new cases on Tuesday.
Despite reporting all these low numbers Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health said they actually expected a rise in cases because of Victoria Day’s long weekend. Dr. David Williams said it will be “disappointing” if cases rise above 1,000 per day again. The province’s rolling seven-day average now sits at 889, a small decrease from Thursday. The positivity rate stays at 2.8 per cent as they processed 32,259 COVID-19 tests.
Ontario also reported that 1,397 COVID-19 cases were resolved Friday, raising the total number of recovered cases to 516,396. The statistics are found in the Ontario Ministry of Health COVID-19 Daily Epidemiologic Summary.
