Ontario is reporting 121 new COVID-19 cases, making it the lowest total in just over a week.

According to Saturday’s numbers, that brings the province’s total of confirmed cases throughout the pandemic to 35,656 — that’s less than a half per cent increase in new cases in a day (0.3 per cent).

The number of resolved cases has climbed about a half per cent (174 resolved since Friday), and now sits at 31,083. That means over 87 per cent of cases have been resolved. 

There have been a total of 2,687 deaths in Ontario since the pandemic started, making it five more since Friday. 

One hundred and fifty people remain in hospital — that’s five less since Friday — 39 of which are in the ICU and 26 on a ventilator.

The age group experiencing the most number of cases is 40-59 (with 10,831 cases), closely followed by the 20-39 age group (10,422).

The government has completed a total of 1,503,322 test altogether — 21,425 of which have been completed since Friday. Of those, 14,594 are currently under investigation.
