Ontario is reporting 798 new cases of COVID-19 today and three more deaths linked to the virus.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says 620 of those cases are in individuals who are not fully vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status.

Elliott says 365 people are hospitalized due to the novel coronavirus and 331 of them are not fully vaccinated.

She says 185 people are in intensive care with the virus with only 11 of those patients fully vaccinated.

The Ministry of Health says 84 per cent of Ontarians over the age of 12 have at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine and 77.5 per cent have two doses.

A total of 21,062,281 vaccine doses have been administered in the province.

The ministry says that there were also seven deaths linked to the virus that occurred more than one month ago and were added to the cumulative count based on data cleaning.
