Ontario reported 643 COVID-19 hospitalizations on Sunday, the lowest number since late March.

However, not all hospitals submit their data on the weekend, so the number is likely much higher.

Sunday’s number is a drop from 865 hospitalizations reported on Saturday and a drop from 809 reported a week earlier.

The provincial health ministry reported 611 hospitalizations due to COVID-19 on March 23.

Of the hospitalizations reported on Sunday, 145 people are in intensive care units, a decrease of one from Saturday’s total. A total of 67 ICU patients infected with the virus are breathing with the help of ventilators.

Ontario also reported two new deaths linked to COVID-19, bringing the total to date to 13,225. Twelve deaths were reported on Saturday.
