Ontario expands list of COVID-19 pharmacy vaccination locations

There are 626 people in an intensive-care unit and 422 on a ventilator.

No new deaths are being reported today, leaving the provincial total since the pandemic began at 949.

Hospitalizations jumped by 25 to 608, with 139 patients in intensive care.

Another 94,794 vaccines were administered, bringing the total number of vaccines given in Ontario to 3,139,743.

Ontario says community groups will help organize COVID-19 vaccine clinics for residents aged 18 and older in "high risk" settings within virus hot spots.

"We are seeing a rapidly deteriorating situation with a record number of COVID cases and hospital admissions threatening to overwhelm our health care system", said Premier Ford.

Of the more than 387,000 COVID cases reported in the province so far, more than 40,000 are now variants of concern and their mutations. The number of cases for any city or region may differ slightly from what is reported by the province, because local units report figures at different times.

Quebec is reporting 1,535 new COVID-19 cases today as well as five additional deaths linked to the virus.

There were 42,167 tests completed in the last 24 hour period, down from the almost 48,000 completed a day ago.

The province also says it gave 59,447 doses of vaccine on Saturday.

Health Minister Christine Elliott said there are 1,016 new cases in Toronto, 613 in Peel Region, and 519 in York Region.

Ontario is reporting 4,401 new COVID-19 cases and 15 additional deaths on Monday.

The Edmundston and the Upper Madawaska region went under full lockdown as of midnight after 15 of 19 new COVID-19 cases announced in the province on Saturday were identified in the area. There were 74,722 vaccine doses administered in the last 24 hour period.

The previous high of 4,229 was recorded on April 9.

There were 593 COVID-positive patients receiving critical care in Ontario ICUs as of Sunday, according to Critical Care Services Ontario.
