Ontario has set a new record high in daily COVID-19 cases, reporting 9,571 new infections today.

The new peak comes a day after the province’s last record tally of 5,790.

Before that, the highest number of new daily cases was 4,812, recorded in April.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says 508 people are hospitalized with the virus, 355 of whom are not fully vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status.

She says 164 people are in ICU due to the virus.

Of these new cases….a staggering 7,425 are in people fully vaccinated.

1113 in Peel
745 in Halton
604 in York
349 in Durham

The positive rate is now 18.7 percent.

Experts said Thursday the current spike in daily infections doesn’t present a full picture of the COVID-19 situation in the province, as testing systems are increasingly strained in several regions due to the fast-spreading Omicron variant.
