The Government of Ontario confirmed 600 new COVID-19 cases and six virus-related deaths on Monday morning.

Four of the deaths are new, and two occurred over one month ago. The additional deaths were discovered during “data cleaning,” the province said.

Today’s cases are lower than Sunday’s 784, Saturday’s 857, Friday’s 848, and Thursday’s 798, but higher than Wednesday’s 554, and Tuesday’s 564.

Of the newly reported cases, 114 are in Toronto, 84 are in Peel Region, and 67 are in York Region.

The majority of today’s cases are individuals who are not vaccinated.

According to Health Minister Christine Elliott, 475 of Monday’s cases are unvaccinated individuals or those whose vaccination status is unknown.

Across Ontario, 189 people are in the ICU with COVID-19. Due to a technical issue, the number of hospitalized patients was not announced.

Ontario has now administered 21,183,369 COVID-19 vaccine doses. Nearly 84.4% of residents aged 12 and over have had one dose, and almost 78.1% are fully immunized.

To date, Ontario has seen 575,219 COVID-19 cases and 9,617 virus-related deaths.
