New COVID-19 cases in Ottawa back above 100

OTTAWA — Ontario health officials are reporting 121 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa on Wednesday.

The figure comes one day after Ottawa recorded 63 new cases of the disease, the lowest one-day case count in more than a week.

Health Minister Christine Elliott reported 583 new cases of COVID-19 across Ontario, from 43,300 tests. 

The province continues to work through a massive backlog of tests, that was as high as 91,000 on the weekend. Ottawa Public Health has said it has been experiencing delays in getting timely test results, which is affecting its ability to trace the contacts of the people who test positive.
