The last time the optimism rate in Ontario was this high was in late January.

An additional 1,741 people tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, but it’s worth noting that Ontario is still enforcing testing restrictions, so this number is likely underestimated.

This slight increase in infection appears to be confirmed by data from Ontario’s COVID-19 Science Table. The disease’s concentration in wastewaters has begun to rise in nearly every province region.

On Monday, four more deaths were confirmed. 3 of the fatality occurred within the last month, and the fourth death was added to the total after data cleaning.
