Ontario reports 341 new COVID-19 cases, 27 more deaths


TORONTO — Ontario is reporting 341 new COVID-19 cases today and 27 more deaths.

The province also says that due to a glitch, Thursday’s numbers were under-reported, so there were actually 345 new cases that day, instead of the reported 258.

The new total of cases in the province is 21,922, including 1,825 deaths and 16,641 cases that have been resolved.

The adjusted numbers mean that the growth rate of new cases has been a steady 1.6 per cent over the past three days.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says Ontario’s new daily cases are still on a downward trend.

The number of people in hospital with COVID-19 dropped sharply, from 1,026 to 986, and the amount of people in intensive care and on ventilators decreased too.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 15, 2020.

  1. I think full disclosure is needed all the way around. They say there are 40 less people in the hospitals and on ventilators; did they need less ventilators due to deaths? Discharges? I mean if the number of people in hospitals and the number on ventilators got lower due to people dying…Not so good 😰
