    TORONTO -- Ontario is reporting a slight dip in daily COVID-19 cases after logging more than 5,800 infections in the last two days.

    Health officials recorded 2,964 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Sunday, marking a decrease from the record-breaking 3,363 infections a day earlier, but a slight increase from the 2,476 cases reported on Friday.

    There were 3,328 cases reported on Thursday and 2,923 cases added on Wednesday.

    The new cases push Ontario’s rolling seven-day average of infections to 2,792.

    On Sunday, the province also recorded an additional 25 deaths, bringing the total death toll related to the disease to 4,650.

    At least 15 of those new deaths were residents in long-term care homes.

    According to Sunday’s epidemiology report, two of the other 10 deceased were between the ages of 20 and 39. Only 20 people within that demographic have died after contracting COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.

    At least 3,215 of the 4,650 COVID-19 deaths have been in people over the age of 80. There have been 177 people who have died between the ages of 40 and 59 and 1,236 deaths in people between the ages of 60 and 79.

    There are currently 228 ongoing outbreaks of COVID-19 in Ontario long-term care homes and 129 in the province’s retirement homes...

      Ontario reports 3,128 new COVID-19 cases as hospital figures all reach pandemic highs
      245 currently sick enough to require the use of a ventilator in the province
      CBC News Posted: Jan 05, 2021 10:12 AM ET | Last Updated: 29 minutes ago

      Ontario reported another 3,128 cases of COVID-19 and 51 more deaths of people with the illness on Tuesday, as the number of active infections and hospitalizations in the province both reached pandemic highs.

      There are now 25,840 confirmed, active cases of the illness throughout Ontario, and the seven-day average of new daily cases surpassed 3,000 for the first time.

      Further, there are 1,347 people with COVID-19 in hospitals, 157 more than yesterday, which was the previous record.

      Of those, 352 are being treated in intensive care and 245 require the use of a ventilator, both also all-time highs in Ontario.

      Public health officials have said that about 350 admissions to Ontario's ICUs is the threshold for when hospitals must begin postponing or even cancelling non-COVID-19 related care and procedures...

        Ontario doubled its COVID-19 case count in just 47 days, underscoring the rapid spread of the virus during the second wave of the pandemic.

            Ford promises more restrictions as Ontario reports record 4,249 new COVID-19 cases
            ICU admissions hit new record high
            CBC News Posted: Jan 08, 2021 7:56 AM ET | Last Updated: 26 minutes ago

            Premier Doug Ford is promising further restrictions coming for Ontario, as the province reported a record 4,249 new cases of COVID-19 on Friday.

            That number comes with the caveat — about 450 were attributable to a data upload delay from Toronto Public Health.

            Even so, that would mean about 3,800 were newly confirmed infections, considerably more than the previous record of 3,519 reported Thursday. The cases that were delayed were "primarily" from Jan. 5 and 6, the province said.

            Ford held a rare morning news conference Friday, where he again asked Ontarians to follow public health guidelines. The premier said new modelling coming early next week will paint a potentially dire scenario in the province.

            "We're in a desperate situation, and when you see the modelling, you'll fall out of your chair," Ford said.

            "There will be further measures, because this is getting out of control."

            Dr. Barbara Yaffe, Ontario's associate chief medical officer of health, agreed with that assessment. "I think we do need to consider more serious measures, perhaps similar to what happened in the spring," she said.

            "Today's numbers, to be frank, are scary."...

              Number of ICU patients in Ontario soars as province records more than 3,000 new COVID-19 cases

              Published Saturday, January 9, 2021 10:10AM EST Last Updated Saturday, January 9, 2021 3:27PM EST

              TORONTO -- A new report has confirmed that Ontario now has 400 patients battling COVID-19 in its intensive care units, which comes as the province logged more than 3,000 new cases for the fifth straight day.

              The report by Critical Care Services Ontario obtained by CTV News Toronto raised alarms after it confirmed on Saturday that 400 patients are currently in the province’s intensive care units (ICUs) due to the novel coronavirus.

              The news comes as health officials reported 3,443 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday. Just the day before, the province released record-breaking numbers with 4,249 new infections.

              The province reported on Saturday that in total 1,457 people are currently in hospital due to COVID-19, and that 244 of the patients in intensive care are breathing with the assistance of a ventilator.

              Ontario health officials have said that when more than 300 COVID-19 patients are in intensive care, medical care in hospitals not related to the disease becomes nearly impossible to handle.

              Dr. Michael Warner, an intensive care unit physician, said on Saturday that hitting the 400-mark of ICU patients across Ontario is very “worrying.”

              Warner said the increase in ICU patients is putting additional strain on hospitals, especially in the GTA. He said the province is on its way to hitting 600 patients in ICU, which will result in prioritizing the order of treatment based on urgency...

                The province also recorded 61 more deaths.

                Fifty-seven of the 61 people who died in the last 24 hours were residents of the long-term care system.

                  TORONTO -- More than 5,000 people have died after contracting COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic, officials confirmed as they logged more than 3,000 cases for the eighth day in a row.

                  Health officials logged 3,338 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, marking a decrease from the record-breaking 3,945 infections the previous day.

                  There were 3,433 cases recorded on Saturday, 3,799 on Friday (not including an extra 450 cases added due to a backlog) and 3,519 on Thursday.

                  Officials also recorded 29 additional deaths related to the disease, bringing the COVID-19 death toll in Ontario to 5,012.

                  At least 14 of the deaths logged Monday were residents at long-term care homes.

                  Of the more than 5,000 people who have died after contracting COVID-19, at least 3,453 were over the age of 80. While seniors are hit hardest by the pandemic, the same demographic only accounts for about seven per cent of all lab-confirmed cases in the province while about 65 per cent of all cases are in people between the ages of 20 and 60.

                  At least 1,563 people are being treated for COVID-19 in Ontario hospitals, a new record for the province. According to a Critical Care Report obtained by CP24, at least 409 of those patients are being treated in the intensive care unit (ICU).

                    Ontario reports 2,903 new coronavirus cases, along with 8 more cases of highly contagious U.K. variant

                    Ontario is reporting 2,903 new cases of the coronavirus on Tuesday, bringing the provincial total to 222,023.

                    Health Minister Christine Elliott said eight new cases of the U.K. coronavirus variant were also detected. The U.K. variant, known as the new B.1.1.7 variant of SARS CoV-2, is believed to be more contagious, but it is not believed to cause more severe illness or resistance to vaccines.

                    There are now 14 confirmed cases of the U.K. variant so far in Ontario.

                    The province’s associate medical officer of health Dr. Barbara Yaffe said out of the eight additional U.K. variant cases, five of them are confirmed to be connected to a recent traveller from the U.K. The other three cases currently are not connected to travel but Public Health Ontario is still investigating.

                    “It’s very likely we have more that we’re not aware of,” Yaffe said. “The variant is already here.”

                    Yaffe said the U.K. coronavirus variant is at least 56 per cent more transmissible.

                    Tuesday’s case count marks a drop in new infections and is the lowest daily increase in cases reported since Jan. 1 when 2,476 new infections were recorded. Case counts have typically been just under or above 3,000 since then.

                    According to Tuesday’s provincial report, 837 cases were recorded in Toronto, 545 were in Peel Region, 249 in York Region, 246 in Niagara Region, 166 in Waterloo Region and 158 in Windsor-Essex County

                    All other public health units in Ontario reported under 150 new cases in the provincial report.

                      The province confirmed 2,961 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Wednesday after a drop in infection numbers just the day before when 2,903 cases were added. This comes after several days of record-breaking case numbers over the 3,000 mark.

                      While the case numbers have dropped, the positivity rate remains high. With just over 50,000 tests completed on Wednesday, the Ontario Ministry of health said the positivity rate now stands at about six per cent.

                      On Tuesday, with just over 40,000 tests completed, that positivity rate was about 7.8.

                        Health officials confirmed another 3,326 cases of the novel coronavirus on Thursday, marking a jump from the 2,961 infections on Wednesday and the 2,903 on Tuesday.

                        At least 29 of the deaths reported were residents in long-term care.

                        Of the more than 5,000 people who have died after contracting COVID-19, at least 3,577 of them were over the age of 80.

                        Twenty of the deaths were in people between the ages of 20 and 39.

                        While most of the deaths appear to be occurring in seniors, those in the 20 to 39 age group continue to make up the largest number of COVID-19 cases.

                        According to the province’s epidemiology report, at least 1,240 of Thursday’s 3,326 cases were in people within that demographic.

                        There were 977 cases in people between the ages of 40 and 59 and 468 infections in people between the ages of 60 and 79.

                        Only 219 cases were found in people over the age of 80.
