COVID-19 Toronto

347 People Hospitalized – 80 People in Intensive Care

TORONTO – The City of Toronto reports that there are 12,538 cases of COVID-19 in the city. That represents an increase of 362 cases since Saturday, June 6, 2020. This increase according to the city is because of delayed reporting of cases to the Toronto Public Health. The delay came from the William Osler Health System and represents positive COVID-19 tests that happened over April and May.
Currently, there are 347 people hospitalized, with 80 in ICU. In total, 9,623 people have recovered from COVID-19, an increase of 151 cases since yesterday. To date, there have been 928 COVID-19 deaths in Toronto.
Provincial orders restricting gatherings of more than five people who are not members of the same household remain in effect and everyone should continue to follow public health recommendations for physical distancing when leaving the house for any reason.
The City’s COVID-19 enforcement team remains focused on providing education about the physical distancing bylaw and provincial orders. Yesterday, the City received 58 complaints related to parks use and physical distancing. Officers have spoken to or cautioned almost 2,000 people this month. Yesterday, 12 tickets were issued yesterday in City parks or squares.
