Toronto asks Ontario government for more testing, funding in homeless shelters

Toronto asks Ontario government for more testing, funding in homeless shelters”

A COVID-19 outbreak at a long-term care facility in a northern Saskatchewan community is over.

Ontario's Health Minister Christine Elliott reported a "glitch" in the province's COVID-19 reporting Friday, which caused some new cases to be missed in yesterday's update.

While it appears that this marks a significant increase compared to Thursday's 258, the lowest number reported since March, both days' reporting are in fact incorrect. The missing 87 cases from yesterday have been added into today's number, which adds up to 428 but had yesterday's data been correct today's new case count would be 341.

Nova Scotia is reporting three new cases of COVID-19, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 1,037.

There were 27 more deaths in people who had contracted the virus on Thursday, which is the lowest number since April 26 and far off the record 86 deaths the province saw on April 30.

The latest data released by the province on Friday indicates that almost 76 per cent of the 21,922 confirmed cases in the province are now considered recovered.

The new patients bring the total number of lab-confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus in the province to 22,653, including 1,881 deaths and 17,360 recoveries.

Ontario has expanded its testing guidelines for coronavirus since May 14.

According to the Public Health Ontario Daily Epidemiologic Summary (iPHIS), there are 263 outbreaks with 823 resident deaths. The ministry has reported 1,360 deaths of residents in long-term care homes as a result of the virus, as well as five staff. Public Health Ontario is reporting there are 414 cases in the Simcoe-Muskoka region.

At the same time, the Ministry of Long-Term Care has started collecting information about coronavirus in long-term care homes through its network of inspectors.

Testing levels were again above the daily target, with 18,354 processed since the last update.

The province has conducted a total of 20,032 tests to date.

The Greater Toronto Area public health units account for more than half of the cases at 62.6%.

Newfoundland and Labrador has eight active cases remaining, out of 260 total cases of COVID-19.

There are now 986 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in Ontario, and of those, 179 are in intensive care units and 135 are on ventilators.
