Ontario continues to see a decline in the number of COVID-19 cases, deaths and admissions to provincial hospitals and intensive care units.

The province says there were 1,540 people in hospital due to the virus on Saturday, of which 402 were in intensive care.

That’s down from the 1,704 hospitalizations and 414 ICU patients reported the day before, though not all hospitals share data on weekends.

The province is also reporting 18more deaths linked to COVID-19.

Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott says there were 2,265 new cases of the virus, down from 2,944 on Saturday, though the number is likely higher due to policies that limit access to testing for many residents.

Nearly 31.3 million vaccine doses have been administered, with 89.4 per cent of Ontarians five years and over having one dose and 84.9 per cent having two.
