There are 3,861 COVID patients in Ontario hospitals, with 615 in intensive care.

Key Takeaways:

  • On Monday, 3,861 people with COVID were admitted to hospitals in Ontario, with 615 of them requiring intensive care.
  • On Mondays, those statistics aren’t updated due to incomplete information reporting from hospitals over the weekend.
  • Of the 4,790 new cases recorded, 814 people were unvaccinated, 182 were partially vaccinated, and 3,496 were fully immunized, according to the data.

On Monday, 3,861 people with COVID were hospitalized in Ontario, with 615 in intensive care units.

This is up to 64 hospitalizations and 11 ICUs from the previous day, though officials noted that not all hospitals reported the latest figures due to the weekend.

The province has recently begun to distinguish among those who were admitted to the hospital for COVID-related reasons and those who had been admitted for other reasons but tested positive for the virus.

However, due to the incomplete information reporting from hospitals over the weekend, those statistics aren’t updated on Mondays.

Meanwhile, Ontario reported 4,790 fresh COVID-19 cases on Monday, though due to recent testing restrictions, this underestimates the true widely spread transmission of the virus. The overall number of cases filed in the province is now 1,001,455.

The data revealed that 814 people were unvaccinated, 182 were partially vaccinated, and 3,496 were fully immunized of the 4,790 fresh cases recorded. The vaccination status of 298 people was unknown.

The province’s death toll has risen to 11,004 after 36 more virus-related deaths were reported in the last month. According to officials, one death from over a month ago was removed from the total.

There have been 924,947 recoveries, accounting for roughly 92 percent of all known cases. The number of cases that have been resolved has increased by 6,924 since the previous day.
