Ontario on Monday reported 3,861 people in the hospital with COVID with 615 in intensive care units.
That’s more than 64 hospitalizations and an increase of 11 in ICUs since the previous day, though officials noted that not all hospitals reported updated figures due to the weekend.
The province has recently begun to differentiate between those who were admitted directly to the hospital due to COVID, and those who were admitted for other reasons but tested positive for the virus.
However, those figures are not updated on Mondays due to incomplete data reported by hospitals over the weekend.
However, figures from last week show that about 44 percent of those admitted to the hospital with COVID were admitted for other reasons. Of those in intensive care with the virus, about 18 percent were admitted for other reasons.

Meanwhile, Ontario also reported 4,790 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, though that is an underestimation of the true widespread transmission of the virus due to recent test restrictions. The provincial case total now stands at 1 001 455.
Of the 4,790 new cases recorded, the data showed 814 were unvaccinated people, 182 were partially vaccinated people, 3,496 were fully vaccinated people. For 298 people, the vaccination status was unknown.
The death toll in the province has risen to 11,004 as 36 more virus-related deaths have been added over the past month. Officials noted that one death more than a month ago was removed from the total.
