Ontario reports two new COVID-19 deaths as hospitalizations tick up

Ontario health officials are reporting two new COVID-19-related deaths Monday.

Both of the deaths occurred in the last month, bringing the total number of individuals who have died with the virus to 13,072.

The Ministry of Health also reported 1,122 people in hospital with COVID-19 Monday, including 159 patients in intensive care, however this is likely an undercount as not all hospitals report data on weekends.

The province is reporting 1,061 new cases of COVID-19, but health officials have warned that reported case numbers are also a significant underestimation due to testing limitations.

Today’s report brings the total number of lab-confirmed cases in Ontario to 1,287,529.
