Ontario confirms 160 new COVID cases today

17 active cases in Northeastern Ontario, including three in the Sudbury, Manitoulin districts

Ontario Public Health is reporting a 0.5 per cent increase in daily cases over yesterday with 160 new COVID cases reported today. 

On June 26, the province reported 111 new cases, which was one of the lowest daily case increases since the start of the pandemic. 

There were 178 more recoveries reported today, which means the number of active cases in the province dropped. 

The province has confirmed a total of 34,476 coronavirus cases to-date, and reported 29,932 recoveries and 2,652 deaths, which leaves 1,892 active cases in Ontario. 

There were eight deaths reported by Public Health Ontario today, which includes one person between the ages of 40 and 59, four people between 60 and 79 years old, and three people over the age of 80. 

Testing continues to rise with 33,492 tests processed since the last report. 

Ontario reported 1,175 new COVID cases this week with daily totals ranging from 111 to 216 new cases. The weekly totals have been declining all month with 1,491 new cases reported from June 7 to 13, and 1,309 cases reported between June 14 and 20. 

There are now 17 active cases of COVID-19 in Northeastern Ontario of the 332 confirmed, following 303 resolutions, and 12 deaths.

Three of these cases are believed to be in the service area of Public Health Sudbury and Districts, despite the fact that the health unit's website reports 64 of its 67 cases as resolved. This understanding stems from the fact that when initially reported, this total number of resolutions would have contradicted the total number of deaths (64 cases, 64 resolutions, two deaths) and has not been updated since. will be confirming the total number of resolved cases when the health unit reopens Monday, but at this point in time, interprets the data to mean 62 resolutions rather than 64. 

A total of 16,228 tests have been conducted in the districts to determine these findings, of the 80,215 logged across Northeastern Ontario. 

The total number of COVID-19 cases, resolutions, and deaths reported by health units across the region to date are as follows:

  • Public Health Sudbury and Districts: 67 cases, 62 resolutions, two deaths
  • Northwestern Health Unit: 36 cases, 27 resolutions
  • Algoma Public Health: 24 cases, 24 resolutions 
  • Timiskaming Public Health: 18 cases, 18 resolutions
  • Porcupine Health Unit: 67 cases, 57 resolutions, 8 deaths
  • North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit: 30 cases, 29 resolutions, one death 
  • Thunder Bay District Health Unit: 90 cases, 86 resolutions, one death
