Ontario sees a slight increase in COVID-19 infections as the seven-day rolling average rises. On Thursday, health officials in the province reported exactly 218 new cases of COVID-19. The province also passed some key milestones for vaccinations.
The seven-day rolling average of daily cases counts is now roughly 165, the highest average in two weeks. The Ministry of Health said the positivity rate stands at 1.3 per cent as they processed 19,425 COVID-19 tests in the last 24-hour period. Hospitals in the province hold 121 patients with the virus in intensive care units with 79 of those individuals breathing with a ventilator.
Ontario has been in Step 3 of its reopening for 13 days and is meeting its vaccination targets. More than 80 per cent of individuals aged 12 and older eligible for a vaccine have at least one dose, according to the Ministry of Health. This means the province is one step closer to moving past Step 3 of reopening.
