    Ontario is opening COVID-19 vaccine appointments for children aged six months to five years old next week and extending the program for three paid sick days until March 2023 as the seventh wave continues with more hospitalizations and deaths.

    The province reported 62 new deaths linked to COVID-19 this week, up from 39 the week before. There are now 1,483 people in hospital with the virus and 126 requiring intensive care. Those figures are up from 985 and 118 at the same time last week.

    Test positivity on Thursday was 15 per cent, with just over 14,000 tests completed...

      Ontario reports 82 new COVID-19 deaths over past week, up from 62
      Number is more than double the number of new deaths reported at the start of July

      Ontario is reporting 82 new deaths linked to COVID-19 over the past week, up from 62 the week before, according to the latest provincial data.

      The number is more than double the number of new deaths reported at the start of July. The province reported 33 new deaths over the period from July 1 to 7.

      The new numbers come as the province contends with a seventh wave of the virus, driven largely by the BA.5 Omicron subvariant, which was declared to have officially begun June 19.

      The province is also reporting 1,492 patients hospitalized with the virus, 138 of whom are in intensive care. Of those, 63 patients are on a ventilator.

      Those figures are up from 1,483 people in hospital with the virus and 126 requiring intensive care this time last week.

      Test positivity was 14.2 per cent Thursday, compared with 15 per cent the same time last week. However that figure is based on testing volume which was down from 14,039 last Thursday to 12,396.

      This past January, the province moved to limit PCR testing to high-risk populations and settings only. Experts have said reported case counts are a severe underestimate of the actual extent of COVID-19 in Ontario...

        Number of people in hospital down slightly but ICU numbers about the same as last week
        CBC News · Posted: Aug 04, 2022 4:53 PM ET | Last Updated: 1 hour ago

        Ontario is reporting 80 more deaths linked to COVID-19 over the past seven days, making this week the second-deadliest of the seventh wave so far.

        Last week, the province reported 82 deaths linked to the virus.

        Newly released data from the Ministry of Health shows the number of people in hospital with the virus is down slightly from 1492 this time last week to 1474 on Thursday.

        The number of people in intensive care because of the virus stayed about the same — 139 Thursday compared with 138 a week ago.

        The new numbers come as the province continues to grapple with a seventh wave of the virus, driven largely by the BA.5 Omicron subvariant. The province has said the seventh wave officially began June 19...
