On Sunday, the province of Ontario tallied 740 new COVID-19 test-positive cases. There were also two fatalities linked to the virus documented during the same time frame.
According to Health Minister Christine Elliott, the bulk of the new cases—551 to be exact—are individuals who have not yet taken even a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Elliot added that the vaccination status of some of the recently infected persons is also “unknown.”
Due to incomplete data, the actual number of the individuals recently infected who are under hospital care, including those recuperating in the intensive care unit, is not disclosed.
Based on the figures released by the provincial government of Ontario, 63 of the newly-reported cases are in the York Region, 106 are in Hamilton, 63 are in the region of Peel, 141 are in Toronto.
However, it is noteworthy that of the 740 new COVID-19 test-positive cases recorded in Ontario, Elliot shared on social media that 189 of these individuals are already “fully vaccinated.”
564,331 COVID-19 cases have been reported in Ontario, including 9,498 virus-related fatalities so far. In this line, 20,709,011 COVID-19 vaccine doses have already been given in the province.
