Ontario is reporting 717 people in hospital with COVID-19 today, and 238 in intensive care.
That’s compared with 742 people in hospital and 244 in ICUs on Thursday.
Ontario reported 2,130 new COVID-19 cases today, but the province’s top doctor has said the actual number is likely 10 times higher, given that access to testing is restricted.
Roughly seven per cent of the province’s long-term care homes are reporting active outbreaks of COVID-19.
The death toll in Ontario due to COVID-19 has been modified to 12,227, which is down from Thursday as 411 deaths were removed. The province announced this week it was changing how it reports deaths to be consistent with categorization from the World Health Organization.
The province will exclude deaths where a person was infected with COVID-19 but the virus did not cause or contribute to the death.
According to the province, just over 81 percent of Ontarians have two doses of the vaccine, almost 48 percent have three.
