The number of active cases of COVID-19 in Ontario has finally dropped below the one-thousand mark.
As of Sunday, there are 981 people confirmed to have the virus.
In the most recent update, 79 new cases were announced along with two deaths.
As well, 148 more cases are considered resolved.
However, this comes with a more sobering milestone; Ontario’s case count has risen past 40,000.
A total of 40,046 cases have been reported since March. Of those, 36,279 are considered resolved.
At least 2,786 deaths have been linked to COVID-19.
Sunday’s update comes after 27,771 tests were completed the day before.
