Ontario reported 15 net new COVID-19 deaths on Friday as the number of patients hospitalized for the virus fell to the absolute lowest since April 1.

Eight of them were residents of the long-term care system.

64 deaths have been reported in the last 7 days and 460 have been reported in the last 30 days.

Since March 2020, a total of 13,210 COVID-19 deaths have been confirmed in Ontario.

The COVID-19 Scientific Advisory Board in Ontario, citing wastewater monitoring data, states that the virus epidemic is stable or diminishing in all parts of the state.

According to the GTA table, the SARS-COV-2 virus wastewater signal is at its lowest point since the arrival of the original Omicron variant in December 2021.

The Ministry of Health said there were 948 COVID-19-positive patients in the hospital on Friday.

This is the lowest total number of COVID-positive patients reported on weekdays, using the complete data available after April 1, 2022.

The number of patients receiving intensive care did not change from 154 on Thursday. It decreased by 7 from last Friday and decreased by 57 last month.

Of these, 68 are breathing with the help of a ventilator, a decrease of 13 from a week ago.

Of the 1,096 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed by PCR, 120 were unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, 167 were vaccinated twice, and 732. The Ministry of Health said that people who had been vaccinated more than three times were involved. The vaccination status of the other 77 people was unknown.

State laboratories processed 13,316 test specimens in the first half of the year, producing a positive rate of 8.4%.

The average test positive rate for the last 7 days was 9%, down from 10.9% last week.

The state said Thursday that it received 22,490 COVID-19 vaccine doses.

Of these, 1,052 were the first dose, 1,314 were the second dose, 2,277 were the third dose, and 17,847 were the fourth dose.

In all age groups, 84.6% of Ontario’s inhabitants have been vaccinated at least once, 81.5% have been vaccinated twice, and 49.2% have been vaccinated three or more times.
