Long term care homes in Ontario continue to feel the effects from COVID-19.
The Ministry of Health says there have been eight more COVID-19 deaths reported today as declines continue for virus-related hospitalizations and intensive care admissions.
According to the Ministry, these eight deaths occurred in the past month and five were long-term care home residents.
There were 888 more coronavirus cases reported today, however health officials say daily case counts are an underestimate due to limited PCR testing.
There are 669 patients with the virus in provincial hospitals, down by one from yesterday and a drop from 948 patients a week ago.
117 patients remain in ICU compared to 119 yesterday.
It is the lowest number of ICU admissions since mid-August.
