Ontario government reports 70 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa on Saturday

OTTAWA — The Ontario government is reporting 70 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa on Saturday.

Health Minister Christine Elliott tweeted the figure Saturday morning, about 16 minutes before Ontario’s daily epidemiologic summary goes live.

The new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa are among 805 new cases reported across Ontario.

Seventy new cases marks a slight decrease in the number of daily new cases, after 99 cases were reported on Friday by Ottawa Public Health and 93 cases were reported on Thursday.

The figures from the Ontario government sometimes differ from updated local figures provided by Ottawa Public Health at around 12:30 p.m. daily. This story will be updated with the local figures from OPH, including total cases, recoveries, active cases and hospitalizations, as soon as they are available.

This is a breaking news story. CTV News will have more information as it becomes available.
