Daily COVID-19 case count in Ottawa remains low as province sets another record high

OTTAWA — Ontario health officials are reporting 28 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa on a day when another new record for cases provincewide was broken.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says 1,426 new cases were reported across Ontario on Wednesday, surpassing the 1,388 recorded on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Ottawa saw 21 new cases, but an uptick in hospitalizations.

Local figures from Ottawa Public Health are due at around 12:30 p.m. OPH figures sometimes differ from provincial figures because of how cases are recorded at the ministerial level, OPH has said.
