According to data given by the province on Saturday, there are 1,392 persons in hospital with COVID-19, including 156 in intensive care.

In comparison to Friday and the previous Saturday, the results show a decrease in the number of persons in ICU and hospital due to the new coronavirus.

COVID-19 wastewater indicators are dropping, according to Dr. Kieran Moore, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health. He also stated that test positive and hospitalizations are decreasing.

“I believe we’ll have a low level of endemic activity throughout the summer if we stay on this path,” he said.

COVID-19 infected 1,453 patients in hospitals yesterday, with 168 of them requiring acute care.

There were 1,563 persons in hospitals with COVID-19 a week ago, on Saturday, May 7. An ICU in Ontario housed a total of 204 individuals.

Due to technical difficulties, Ontario’s COVID data was delayed on Saturday, and not all data sets were updated.

On Saturday, Ontario announced 1,575 lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases. Due to testing regulations that limit accessibility to PCR tests in the province, experts believe the figure is likely to underestimate the total number of cases.

There were 11 additional COVID-19-related deaths in the data.
