Ford says Ontario's COVID-19 numbers 'moving in right direction'

The latest news on COVID-19 developments in Canada

Ontario is reporting 934 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday, and 10 deaths.

It says another 773 cases are now considered resolved, and 30,010 tests have been completed since the last daily report. The last two days saw low single-digit counts after another jump on Monday with 14 cases.

More than 1,000 of the cumulative cases have been in the City of London, while 210 are associated with long-term care and retirement homes.

Ontario school cases have reported a slight increase with 99 new cases, compared to Wednesday's 92. Another 279 cases were added in people between the ages of 40 and 59.

The modelling originally said we would see daily cases over 1,000 in October which has happened, but in recent days that number has dropped and is now in the 800 range.

Where are the new COVID-19 cases?


The province also said 312 people are now in hospital with COVID-19, including 71 in intensive care. Of those patients, 77 are in the intensive care unit and 52 are breathing with the assistance of a ventilator.

Ontario's four COVID-19 hotspots continue to have the highest number of COVID-19 infections.

After Toronto, the most new cases were in Peel (169), York Region (95) and Ottawa (58).

The figures are expected to be released this afternoon at a news conference involving several health officials, including the province's top public health doctor.

Health Minister Christine Elliott said 35,621 tests were conducted in the last-recorded 24-hour period.
