Marking today as the lowest new daily case count since mid-September, Ontario reported 210 new infections of the novel coronavirus. The decrease in cases comes after the province expanded the second dose of mRNA vaccine eligibility for all adults. That meant another 1.5 million people could receive second shots weeks ahead of schedule.
Individuals that got Pfizer or Moderna vaccine can get their second shot as soon as 28 days after the first. Individuals who received the AstraZeneca shot must wait eight weeks before getting a second AstraZeneca shot or mRNA vaccine. Yesterday, public health units administered 180,369 shots, the most amount of vaccines ever given on a Sunday.
The positivity rate stands at 1.8 per cent as Public Health Ontario processed 13,071 COVID-19 tests in the last 24-hour period. The seven-day rolling average dropped to around 267. Since yesterday, there are 287 people being treated in intensive care units and 191 of them need a ventilator to breathe.
