Ontario is reporting 4,736 new COVID-19 cases, a record-high daily COVID-19 case count, and 29 more deaths, according to its latest report released Thursday morning.

The seven-day average is at 4,208 cases daily, a record for the third wave, or 202 weekly per 100,000, a record-high since the start of the pandemic. Ontario’s seven-day average for deaths is at 20.7 daily, another record high for the third wave.

The province says 65,559 tests were completed the previous day with a 8 per cent positivity rate.

There are 1,932 people currently hospitalized with COVID-19 in the province, including 659 patients in intensive care. There are 442 people on ventilators.

Ontario has administered 105,430 vaccine doses since its last daily update, with 3,528,404 vaccines given in total as of 7 p.m. the previous night. The province says 339,491 people have completed their vaccinations, which means they’ve had both doses.

Locally, Health Minister Christine Elliott says there are 1,188 new cases in Toronto, 983 in Peel, 526 in York Region, 342 in Ottawa, 216 in Durham and 215 in Niagara.

Meanwhile, the province is reporting that there were no new deaths in long-term care, so the number of long-term-care residents who have died stays the same at 3,755.

Ontario is reporting one fewer long-term-care homes in outbreak, for a total of 40 or 6.4 per cent of LTC homes in the province, with seven new staff cases and eight new resident cases.

This data is self-reported by the long-term care homes to the Ministry of Long-Term Care. Daily case and death figures may not immediately match the numbers posted by the local public health units due to lags in reporting time.

There are 27,278 confirmed cases in Ontario of the highly contagious B.1.1.7 variant first detected in the United Kingdom, an increase of 2,811 from the previous day.

There are 95 cases in Ontario of the B.1.351 variant first detected in South Africa, 11 more than the previous day.

There are 191 cases of the P.1 variant first found in Brazil, an increase of 15 from the previous day.
