On Thursday, 2,093 cases were confirmed, up from 1,670 on Wednesday and 1,740 the day before. The seven-day average for infections in Ontario now stands at 2,128, down from 2,751 a week before.
The province has recorded 6,014 deaths related to COVID-19 since the pandemic began. In just a handful of regions across the province, most of the cases reported Thursday were discovered. Ever since inoculations began last month, at least 317,240 shots have been given out, health officials say.
The government of Ontario admits that the total number of people considered fully vaccinated against the virus is erroneous. Since the beginning of January, more than 1,400 of the 6,000 deaths have been recorded, with more than 2,500 since January and 1,000 since December.
