first time in months the virus hasn't claimed any lives day-over-day

For the first time since March 29, public health officials are reporting no lives were lost to COVID-19 in the last 24 hours.

In its daily update on COVID-19 statistics, Public Health Ontario is reporting a death toll of zero. Health officials also announced 154 new cases of COVID-19 were added to the provincial caseload, along with 160 recoveries, meaning for fewer and fewer active cases every day.

Twenty-nine of the province’s 34 public health units are reporting five or fewer cases, with 18 of them reporting no new cases at all. Windsor-Essex is reporting four new cases today, having battled with outbreaks among migrant farmworkers in the past few weeks.

There were just over 17,000 tests run in a day, just above the province’s daily testing target. There were nearly 9,000 tests in backlog. The province has run over 1.5 million tests to date.
