The province reported 1,056 hospitalizations due to COVID-19 Sunday, 135 less than Saturday’s report.
Of those patients, 324 are in the ICU, five less than Saturday. However, Sundays tend to be undercounts as some hospitals do not report their bed counts.
There were 19 deaths announced. Another two deaths were removed due to a data cleanup.
It brings the death toll in the province to 12,264.
There were 1,966 new cases reported Sunday, but Public Health Ontario admits case counts are an underestimate of the true number of individuals with COVID-19 in the province.
The number of known active cases went down to 21,302, but that number is also underestimated due to the province’s testing limitations.
There were 16,752 tests completed the day prior to this report with a backlog of 2,992 tests.
The province is reporting a positivity rate of 9.1 per cent.
So far in Ontario, 31,500,915 vaccines have been administered.
According to the province, 12,549,891 people have at least one dose, 11,963,565 people have received two doses and 6,870,782 have three doses.
In Ontario, 89.56 per cent of eligible residents five and up have their first shot and 85.38 per cent have two doses.
Third doses are available to people aged 12 and up. In Ontario, 53.13 per cent of eligible residents 12 and up have three doses.
