Ontario reports 811 new COVID-19 cases and three deaths, with 32,450 vaccine doses administered

Ontario is reporting another 811 COVID-19 cases and three more deaths, according to its latest report released Sunday morning.

The province says two of those deaths actually happened months ago but are only reported now because of a cleanup of data.

Ontario has administered 32,450 vaccine doses since its last daily update, with 20,950,000 vaccines given in total as of 8 p.m. the previous night.

According to the Star’s vaccine tracker, 10,900,908 people in Ontario have received at least one shot. That works out to approximately 83.6 per cent of the eligible population 12 years and older, and the equivalent of 73.3 per cent of the total population, including those not yet eligible for the vaccine.

The province says 10,049,092 people have completed their vaccinations, which means they’ve had both doses. That works out to approximately 77.1 per cent of the eligible population 12 years and older, and the equivalent of 67.6 per cent of the total population, including those not yet eligible for the vaccine.

The province is now including new data that reflects hospitalizations and cases by vaccination status. Ontario is warning that the new process may cause discrepancies between other hospitalization numbers being collected using a different process, and that the data may not match daily COVID-19 case counts.

The province’s latest data reports 482 COVID-19 cases were confirmed in unvaccinated people, 98 were partially vaccinated, and 168 cases in fully vaccinated people. Again, the province warns the data may not match daily COVID case counts because records with a missing or invalid health card number can’t be linked.

There are 266 people currently hospitalized with COVID-19 in the province, including 155 patients in intensive care testing positive for COVID-19. There are 104 people on ventilators.

Meanwhile, one more resident in long-term care has died for a total of 3,795 since the pandemic began, in the latest report released by the province,

Ontario is reporting two more long-term-care homes in outbreak, for a total of eight or 1.3 per cent of LTC homes in the province.

This data is self-reported by the long-term care homes to the Ministry of Long-Term Care. Daily case and death figures may not immediately match the numbers posted by the local public health units due to lags in reporting time.

There are 146,431 confirmed cases in Ontario of the Alpha variant first detected in the United Kingdom, an increase of two from the previous day.

There are 1,501 cases in Ontario of the Beta variant first detected in South Africa, the same as the previous day.

There are 5,223 cases of the Gamma variant first found in Brazil, an increase of one from the previous day.

There are 12,467 cases of the Delta variant first detected in India, an increase of 632 from the previous day.

There won’t be a report on Labour Day, with two days worth of data to be published Tuesday.
