The Province of Ontario has confirmed 92 new COVID-19 cases, as of Friday morning, still reporting under 100 despite missed data from the day before.

There is one confirmed death.

Today’s new cases are an increase from Thursday’s 78 — which did not include data from Toronto Public Health — but a decrease from Wednesday’s 95.

Tuesday’s 33 new cases were the lowest numbers since March 18, when the province reported just 23 cases.

According to Health Minister Christine Elliot, Friday’s cases include Toronto Public Health’s data from yesterday.

She noted that the province processed over 30,000 tests.

“The number of vented patients has declined to single digits, with nine Ontarians on ventilators. ICU admissions have also declined,” Elliot said.

There are a total of 40,459 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Ontario reported to date.

On Wednesday and Tuesday, Toronto reported just eight new cases for each day, but did not give an update on Thursday.

And at the start of the week, 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.

To date in Toronto, there have been 15,548 cases, with 14,117 recovered and 1,163 reported deaths.
