    Data delay means Ontario reports 1,631 new COVID-19 cases, as final stay-at-home orders lift
    More retailers to open, with restrictions, for first time in months in Toronto, Peel
    CBC News · Posted: Mar 08, 2021 8:08 AM ET | Last Updated: 1 hour ago

    Ontario is reporting 1,631 new COVID-19 cases on the same day stay-at-home orders lift in three regions, including Toronto and Peel — which have consistently seen the province's highest number of infections throughout the pandemic.

    Monday's cases mark the highest number of new infections in over a month, though Ontario's Ministry of Health says today's case count is higher than expected due to a "data catch-up process."

    Of the new cases, 568 were reported in Toronto, 322 were reported in Peel Region and 119 were reported in York Region.

    Provincewide, the Ontario government is reporting that some 626 people are in hospital with COVID-19. Of those, 282 are in intensive care, and 184 require a ventilator to breathe.

    But according to a report by Critical Care Services Ontario — which provides a more up-to-date look at critical care data — the actual number of patients with COVID-19 in intensive care now sits at 337.

    Ontario is also reporting an additional 10 deaths, bringing the death toll to 7,077...

    Toronto, Peel and North Bay were the last regions still under a stay-at-home order, and are transitioning back to the government's colour-coded pandemic response framework...

    ...Labs also confirmed 51 more cases of a coronavirus variant first identified in the United Kingdom, bringing the cumulative total to 879 (though the actual number is likely higher).

    The seven-day average of daily cases now stands at 1,155 — the highest it's been in three weeks...

    Ontario recorded 1,062 new cases of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus on Sunday, down from the 1,185 confirmed on Saturday and the 1,258 logged on Friday.

    According to the province, the number of patients with COVID-19 who are receiving treatment in hospital has dipped to 627, although hospitalization data is frequently less reliable during the weekends due to gaps in reporting from some hospitals...
