Ontario reports 3,443 COVID-19 cases on Saturday

40 people have died from COVID-19 in Ontario since Friday, bringing the province's total death toll close to 5000


Ontario recorded another 3,443 COVID-19 cases and 40 deaths on Saturday. 26 deaths were among residents from long-term care homes. To date 4,922 have died from COVID-19 in Ontario. 21 of them were under the age of 40.

The case numbers are a significant drop from the 4,249 recorded the day before, which skewed higher because of a data backlog. 2,915 cases have resolved since Friday.

Toronto added 1070 cases since Friday.

“There will be further measures, because this is getting out of control,” Ontario Premier Doug Ford told press on Friday. He warns of increasingly dire outlooks in upcoming modelling and additional efforts to contain the virus beyond extending school lockdowns.

There have been 211,837 COVID-19 cases in Ontario to date. A total of 4,922 people have died.
