Ontario reports 613 people in hospital with COVID-19 and 185 in ICUs

TORONTO — Ontario is reporting 613 people in hospital with COVID-19 and 185 people in ICU.

That's down from 615 hospitalizations and 193 intensive care patients yesterday.

There are 13 more COVID-19 deaths being reported today.

Provincial data show 2,078 new infections, but Ontario's top doctor has said the actual number is likely 10 times higher than the daily log, since access to PCR testing is restricted.

About seven per cent of long-term care homes in the province have active COVID-19 outbreaks.

Data on school closures isn't being logged this week due to the March break.
