The Province of Ontario has confirmed 33 new COVID-19 cases, with no reported deaths, as of Tuesday morning.

Tuesday’s new cases are a major decrease from Monday’s 115, Sunday’s 79 and Saturday’s 70 — which at the time was the lowest daily count since March.

The last time COVID-19 cases were near 33 was on March 18, when the province reported new 23 cases.

According to Health Minister Christine Elliott, Tuesday’s new numbers “includes routine data clean-up by Toronto Public Health, which removed 21 cases, such as duplicates, that had previously been included in daily case counts.”

The province processed over 21,500 tests yesterday, Elliott said.

“With 75 more resolved, we continue to see a persistent decline in the number of active cases in the province,” she added.

There are a total of 40,194 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario reported to date.

On Monday, the Toronto Public Health’s COVID-19 Monitoring Dashboard officially reached an overall status of “green” for the first time during the pandemic.

This means that the city is reaching its goal for virus spread and containment, laboratory testing, health system capacity, and public health system capacity.

Toronto had 18 more coronavirus cases reported on August 10.

The current seven day moving average of new cases in the city is 21.

To date, there are a total of 15,532 cases in Toronto, with 14,108 recovered and 1,163 reported deaths.
