Ontario COVID cases, deaths, vaccinations, recoveries, testing

Meanwhile, Ontario also reported 2,300 new lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, though that is an underestimate of the true widespread transmission of the virus due to testing restrictions. The provincial case total now stands at 1,200,619.

The death toll in the province has risen to 12,570 as four more virus-related deaths were added. Tuesday’s report indicated one death was removed after data cleanup.

There are a total of 1,156,332 recoveries, which is around 96 per cent of known cases. Resolved cases increased by 2,282 from the previous day.

For vaccinations, of the aged 12 and older population, 91 per cent are fully vaccinated. First dose coverage stands at 93.1 per cent. Third dose immunization is at 59.2 per cent — more than 7.2 million Ontarians have received a booster shot.

For young children aged five to 11, first dose coverage stands at 55.9 per cent with 34.1 per cent who are fully vaccinated.

The province administered 28,641 doses in the last day.

The government said 14,183 tests were processed in the previous 24 hours. There are 9,407 tests currently under investigation.
