Ontario’s chief medical officer Dr. David Williams on Monday said if Ontario stayed on its track presented in last week’s COVID-19 modelling, the province would have close to 5,000 daily cases, however, Monday’s case number did not amount to that.
While a lower case count could be attributed to fewer tests done on the weekend, Williams said the positivity percentage of tests didn’t go up as it had done in past weeks.
Ontario reported 2,578 new cases of the coronavirus on Monday, bringing the provincial total to 240,364.
Monday’s case count is a significant dip from Sunday’s, which saw 3,422 new infections. On Saturday, 3,056 new cases were recorded and 2,998 on Friday.
It is also the lowest number of new cases reported within 24 hours since Jan. 1 when 2,476 new cases were recorded.
