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


New COVID-19 case numbers in Ontario Tuesday reached the lowest single-day figure in almost five months.

Tuesday's new cases are a major decrease from Monday's 115, Sunday's 79 and Saturday's 70 - which at the time was the lowest daily count since March.

No new outbreaks were reported in Tuesday's update.

There have 75 more cases resolved, also contributing to a steady decline in active cases in the province according to Elliott. "Right across the province there were 33 cases reported, but, still, in saying that, we can't take our eye off the ball for a moment".

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

It was the lowest number of new cases reported in Ontario since March 18.

A total of 44 cases have been recorded since the health unit began recording caseload of the virus in the catchment area.

There are 15 people in hospital with COVID-19 complications, four more than in Tuesday's report.

Eight health care workers were infected while six health care workers were listed as probable. An additional person is in intensive care, for two total.

To date, 19,290 tests have been conducted in the region, the health unit reported.

Ontario is reporting a dramatic dip in fresh instances of COVID-19 however the elimination of a duplicated information from Toronto Public Health is partly accountable for the current drop.
