TORONTO – Ontario is reporting 78 new cases of COVID-19 today and no new deaths from the novel coronavirus, but Health Minister Christine Elliott says today’s numbers do not include data from Toronto Public Health.
Elliott also says hospitalizations due to the virus declined over the previous 24 hours, while the number of patients in intensive care and on ventilators remained stable.
The province also announced this morning that 99 more cases were marked as resolved.
Ontario’s total case count is now 40,367, with 36,689 marked as resolved and 2,787 deaths.
The province says it processed 29,626 tests over the last 24 hours.
Meanwhile, Premier Doug Ford is set to meet with local leaders in Windsor-Essex today after the region entered Stage 3 of the province’s reopening plan this week.
Ford will spend the day in the city of Windsor and meet with mayors from across the region to discuss economic recovery.
The premier is also set to tour the Ford Motor Company’s Essex Engine Plant, a portion of which was retooled to produce plastic face shields for front-line workers during the pandemic.
Ford will hold his daily COVID-19 media briefing from Windsor alongside the province’s labour minister and associate transportation minister.
Windsor-Essex moved to Stage 3 on Wednesday after being held back because of COVID-19 outbreaks on local farms.The latest numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Canada as of 1:48 p.m. on Aug. 12, 2020:
