Ontario reports 27 new COVID-19 cases in Ottawa

OTTAWA — Public Health Ontario is reporting 27 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa on Monday.

A full local snapshot from Ottawa Public Health is due this afternoon. Figures from OPH often differ from Public Health Ontario’s because the two health agencies pull data for their respective daily reports at different times of the day.

Across Ontario, health officials confirmed 639 new cases of COVID-19. No new deaths related to COVID-19 were reported in Ontario on Monday. Another 502 existing cases of COVID-19 in the province are now considered resolved.

Fifteen more cases were reported around eastern Ontario, including six in the Eastern Ontario Health Unit, four in Hastings Prince Edward, three in Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, and one each in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark and Renfrew County.

UNVACCINATED CASES

Health Minister Christine Elliott says of the 639 cases reported on Monday, 515 were in people who were not fully vaccinated or who had an unknown vaccination status and 124 cases were in fully vaccinated individuals.

There are 204 people in hospitals across Ontario with COVID-19; 151 people are in the ICU.

Due to the fact that not all hospitals report on the weekends, Elliott said the vaccination status of individuals in hospital with COVID-19 is not reported on Sunday or Monday.
