Ontario reports 41 new COVID-19 cases in Ottawa

OTTAWA — Public Health Ontario is reporting 41 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa on Monday.

A full local snapshot from Ottawa Public Health is due this afternoon. Figures from OPH often differ from Public Health Ontario’s because the two health agencies pull data for their daily respective snapshot reports at different times of the day.

Across the province, health officials confirmed another 613 cases of COVID-19. No new deaths were reported in Ontario on Monday and another 578 existing cases are now considered resolved. The province’s rolling seven-day average continues to drop. As of Monday, the average is 621, down from 710 last week.

Around the region, Public Health Ontario added 40 additional cases, including 35 in the Eastern Ontario Health Unit, four in Hastings Prince Edward, and one in Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington.

UNVACCINATED CASES

Health Minister Christine Elliott says of the 613 new cases reported across Ontario on Monday, 454 were in people who are not fully vaccinated or who have an unknown vaccination status and 159 are in people who are fully vaccinated.

Data from hospitals across Ontario is unavailable on Mondays because some hospitals don’t report to the province on weekends.

Ottawa Public Health data suggest unvaccinated residents are 11 times more likely to contract COVID-19 than fully vaccinated residents are.
