Province reports over 200 new cases of COVID-19 across Ontario, second time in ten days

174 recoveries, 10 deaths

Public Health Ontario is confirming 216 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed by lab-tests province-wide, as the number of tests run in a day dips by thousands.

Provincial health officials have been consistently reporting fewer than 200 new cases of COVID-19 daily, for the past ten days except for Saturday’s 206 new cases and Tuesday’s 216.

Meanwhile, 174 more recoveries were reported by public health officials, along with another 10 lives lost.

This comes as the province surpassed its testing target by less than 200 tests run in a day. For weeks, the province had been overshooting its testing target of 16,000 daily by thousands. There were over 16,000 waiting in backlog as well.
