Jul 27 2020, 2:15 pm

The Province of Ontario confirmed there are 119 new known COVID-19 cases on Monday morning, with one death.

This is down from Sunday’s 137 new cases, as well as the 138 cases announced SaturdayFriday’s 195 cases, and well under Tuesday’s 203 — which was the highest reported numbers in almost a month.

Wednesday, July 15, saw 102 new cases, which was the lowest since March 25.

According to Health Minister Christine Elliot, 30 of Ontario’s 34 public health units are reporting five or fewer cases, with 16 of them reporting no new cases. Windsor-Essex is reporting 40 new cases with another 28 in Ottawa.

Age seems to be playing a factor, according to the deputy premier, as “76 of today’s cases, or 64%, are under the age of 40.”

She also said that nearly 25,000 tests were processed over the reporting period. The province has now processed over two million tests since the pandemic started.

In long-term care homes, there was a drop by one in total cases among residents, leaving 5,884 still active, with no new deaths reported.
