According to Dr. Barbara Yaffe, Ontario relies on local public health units to report on the coronavirus, both in the community and in long-term care homes, through iPHIS, in which there is a delay in the data being received.

At the same time, the Ministry of Long-Term Care has started collecting information about coronavirus in long-term care homes through its network of inspectors.

There were 13,970 tests completed from the previous day.

The Greater Toronto Area public health units account for more than half of the cases at 61.8%.

Of the total cases, 41.9% are male and 57.3% are female, with 43.1% of cases age 60 years and older.

To date, there are 1,027 hospitalized, with 194 in ICU, and 147 patients are on ventilators.

iPHIS is the Ministry of Health’s disease reporting system where data is regularly updated, and where each daily summary is pulled at 4 pm the previous day.
