Second day in a row: province reporting fewer than 100 new COVID cases across Ontario

Just three new cases in Simcoe County

This is something we could get used to. Public Health Ontario reported just 89 new cases of COVID-19 across the province on Thursday. That’s the second day in a row the caseload addition was below the 100 mark.

Health officials are also reporting almost double that in recoveries, with 165 people on the mend. Public Health Ontario confirms another three lives were lost since its update on Wednesday.

The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit reported just three new cases of COVID-19 in its region on Thursday: two people between the ages of 18 and 34 in Bradford, and one from Orillia in the 45 to 64 age range.

While the number of cases across the province continues to trend downward, the number of cases among younger demographics is falling slower than the rest. Among Thursday’s caseload addition were 43 cases involving people between the ages of 20 and 39.
