Two COVID-19 updates for the price of one; Public Health Ontario increases case count by less than 100 two days in a row

88 on Monday, 91 on Tuesday

Public Health Ontario has made up for a lack of updates on Civic Holiday Monday with a pair of caseload increases reported on Tuesday. Both are below 100.

On Monday, the province-wide caseload increased by 88 new cases of COVID-19, with another 126 recoveries and no lives lost since Sunday’s update. On Tuesday, there were 91 new cases reported, along with four new deaths and 116 people who have recovered.

As infections among younger demographics continue to decline more slowly than other age groups, health officials report 42 percent of Monday’s caseload increase was among those aged 20 to 39. On Tuesday, 30 percent of cases were in that age group.

In Monday’s update, health units in Peel, Toronto, Lambton, and Southwest were reporting double-digit increases. On Tuesday, only Peel and Toronto saw increases of more than ten cases, at 16 and 22 respectively.
