Ontario reporting 318 new COVID-19 cases, 12 deaths

While new COVID cases continue to drop, the feds have launched a campaign to encourage more Canadians to get vaccinated


Ontario is reporting 318 new cases of COVID-19 and 12 deaths based on 21,063 tests administered yesterday. Another 6,150 tests are still pending. The total number of reported COVID cases in ICUs is 333, with 208 of those patients on ventilators.

More than 184,000 Ontarians were vaccinated yesterday, bringing to 74.8 per cent the number of adults in the province who have received at least one vaccine dose.

While new COVD case numbers are dropping and vaccine uptake is high across the country – more than 70 per cent of Canadians have received at least one dose – the federal government has launched a campaign to encourage more people to get vaccinated.

An Ask The Experts advertising campaign featuring short videos of experts answering commonly asked questions about vaccines was announced yesterday.

The feds are also asking Canadians to share their stories about getting vaccinated by joining the  #MyWhy campaign on social media. The government says that it hopes that by sharing their experiences more Canadians will be encouraged to get their second dose.
