Ontario’s COVID-19 hospitalizations highest in 8 months; 121 new deaths reported – CBC

Not since February has the province seen hospitalizations of those with virus this high

Oct 27, 2022

Ontario is reporting 121 new COVID-19 deaths and 1,921 hospitalizations over the past seven days — the highest reported hospitalization rate since February.

The newly reported hospitalizations from the Ministry of Health’s weekly data are a jump from 1,663 at the same time last week when the province reported 109 deaths.

Not since Feb. 9 has Ontario seen COVID-19 hospitalizations this high. On that day, the province reported 2,059 people in hospital with the virus.

The province’s weekly data release normally includes seven individual days worth of information spanning the number of newly reported COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, intensive care admissions and deaths. Last week’s release did not include three days of data from Oct. 15, 16 and 17 — which the ministry attributed to “technical difficulties.”
