Ontario is reporting 807 more cases of COVID-19 today and seven added deaths. Health Minister Christine Elliott says 628 are in people who are not fully vaccinated, or whose vaccination status isn’t known

Health Minister Christine Elliott says 628 of the new diagnoses are in people who are not fully vaccinated, or whose vaccination status isn’t known.

She says 326 people are hospitalized with the virus, and only 34 of them are fully vaccinated.

Provincial data shows 169 people are in intensive care due to COVID-19, including 105 who are on a ventilator.

Elliott says 83.3 per cent of Ontarians aged 12 and up have had at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, while 76.8 per cent are fully vaccinated.

The province this week announced a vaccine certificate program aimed at boosting those numbers.
