Ontario reported a jump in daily COVID-19 infections with 2,380 cases reported Thursday.
Health Minister Christine Elliot noted 280 of those cases are delayed reports from previous days due to a data issue.
Still, this means 2,100 new cases were reported as of Thursday, which is significantly higher than the rolling average of 1,696 from the past six days.
Of the newly announced cases, 1,016 are in Toronto, 294 are in Peel, and 244 are in York Region.
Today’s case count is higher by approximately 280 cases due to a data catch-up process related to the provincial CCM system.
Today’s numbers will be available at 10:30 a.m. at https://t.co/ypmgZbVRvn.
