Ontario records 33 new COVID cases, duplicate case removal drops figures


TORONTO — Ontario is reporting 33 new cases of COVID-19 today — the lowest daily case count in months — but the province’s health minister attributes part of the drop to “routine data clean-up.”

Christine Elliott says Toronto Public Health removed 21 cases, including some duplicates, from its total.

She says an additional 75 cases have been resolved.

Sixty people are in hospital with COVID-19, with 21 of them in intensive care and 12 on ventilators.

The province’s total case count is now 40,194, with 36,456 marked as resolved and 2,786 deaths.

The province says it processed 21,581 tests over the last 24 hours.
