Ontario reports 566 coronavirus cases with most in Toronto, Peel and Ottawa

Ontario reported 566 cases of the novel coronavirus on Sunday, bringing the total number of cases in the province to 54,199.

“Locally, there are 196 new cases in Toronto, 123 in Peel and 81 in Ottawa,” Health Minister Christine Elliott said on Twitter.

“Sixty-two per cent of today’s cases are in people under the age of 40. There are 534 more resolved cases.”

Elliott said the province completed nearly 39,700 additional tests.

“Due to a data review at [Toronto Public Health], a number of cases and deaths that occurred in the spring or summer are being reported today,” she said.

It’s unclear how many of the 566 cases may be from the spring or summer.

A total of seven deaths were also reported on Sunday, with three of them being added due to the data review process.
