Ontario reports another 640 COVID-19 cases and 10 more deaths. Of the 10 deaths, four occurred more than a month ago and were added to the cumulative count as part of a data cleanup. according to the latest report from the province released Saturday morning.
Ontario has administered 47,871 vaccine dose since its last daily update, with 21,614,205 vaccinations administered in total at 8 pm the night before.
According to Star’s vaccine tracker, 11,176,654 people in Ontario have received at least one injection. That’s roughly 85.7 percent of the eligible population 12 and older, and the equivalent of 75.2 percent of the total population, including those who are not yet eligible for the vaccine.
The province says 10,437,551 people have completed their vaccinations, meaning they have received both doses. That’s roughly 80.1 percent of the eligible population 12 and older, and the equivalent of 70.2 percent of the total population, including those who are not yet eligible for the vaccine.
The province now includes data that reflects hospitalizations and cases by vaccination status. Ontario cautions that the process may cause discrepancies between other hospitalization numbers that are collected through a different process, and that the data may not match daily COVID-19 case counts.
The province reports that 370 cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in unvaccinated people, 46 were partially vaccinated, and 155 cases were fully vaccinated. Again, the province cautions that the data may not match daily COVID case counts because records with a missing or invalid health card number cannot be linked.
The province says data on hospitalizations by vaccination status will not be updated on Sundays and Mondays due to incomplete weekend reports.
The province says 33,303 tests were completed the day before and a positivity rate of 1.9 percent.
