Ontario reports 408 new coronavirus cases, 25 deaths as total cases top 4,000

The death toll has risen to 119.

There are 523 people in the hospital with COVID-19 — an increase of 17 from Saturday’s report — and 200 in intensive care, with 154 on a ventilator.

Just over 980 cases remain under investigation in the province, and 1,449 cases are considered resolved.

Sunday’s report marks an 11.2 percent increase in cases, compared to 11.5 percent on Saturday and 16.5 percent on Friday.

The province’s updated numbers are always as of 4 p.m. the day prior.

Meanwhile, the Canadian military is advising citizens in the Toronto area they there will be personnel and equipment on roads starting Monday, as officials look to set up a task force at Canadian Forces Base Borden.

The military says they will then be ready to respond to COVID-19 requests from the government if needed.

The provincial government issued its second COVID-19-related emergency alert Saturday afternoon to TVs, radios, and cellphones advising people to stay home unless “absolutely necessary.”
