Nearly half of Ontario’s new COVID-19 infections announced on Monday were in the City of Toronto.
New provincial data shows there were 181 new COVID-19 cases. Of that number, 85 were in Toronto, while an additional 41 were in Peel Region.
Many in the Greater Toronto Area are keeping an eye on Premier Doug Ford’s government to see if it will extend its reopening to the region, as new daily COVID-19 cases continue to trend downward.
Here’s a look at the latest stats from the city:
- On Monday, Toronto confirmed 85 new COVID-19 cases.
- There are 303 people in hospital, with 73 requiring intensive care.
- Toronto’s most suburban neighbourhoods continue to be hardest hit, though some dense downtown neighbourhoods also have higher levels of COVID-19.
Toronto’s coronavirus death toll, meanwhile, is nearing 1,000. There have now been 982 deaths in the city alone.
