What you need to know about COVID-19 in Ottawa on Friday, Dec. 3 – CBC

Key updates on COVID-19 in the region

Dec 03, 2021

What’s the latest?

Ottawa Public Health (OPH) reported 60 more COVID-19 cases on Friday and no more deaths. Some of the numbers to watch are slowly rising.

A quarter of Ottawa’s newly eligible children got their first vaccine dose in the first week of the city’s clinics, according to OPH. That’s more than 19,000 children born between 2010 and 2016.

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization now strongly recommends all Canadians over the age of 50 and other vulnerable groups get a third dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. That mirrors Ontario’s plans and would be an expansion for Quebec.

The committee also recommends younger adults get a third mRNA shot at least six months after they got their second.

How many cases are there?

As of Friday, Ottawa has had 32,160 confirmed cases of COVID-19. There are 363 known active cases, while 31,179 cases are considered resolved and 618 people have died from the illness.
