The announcement came as Ontario reported 4,456 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, marking a new single-day high for new infections.
The province added 3,670 cases on Tuesday with sixty-nine per cent in the hot spots around the GTHA and Ottawa.
The province has now reached a positivity rate for the virus of nearly 8 per cent, with 1,513 people in hospital.
The province reports a test positivity rate of 10.3 per cent, up from 9.5 a day ago and 8.9 last week.
The province is reporting that 94,794 vaccines were administered yesterday, which is well below the 130,000 daily target set by the government.
Ontario hospitals started ramping down elective surgeries and non-urgent procedures on Monday to ensure they have the capacity to treat more COVID-19 patients.
More than 700 Ontario pharmacies are joining the COVID-19 vaccine rollout as the province races to slow to spread of the virus. Of those cases, 351,257 people have recovered and 7,582 have died.Читайте также: Video Shows VA Cops Assault, Pepper Spray Uniformed Black Army Officer
Ontario's seven-day average for number of cases reported is 3,868, which is more than 1,000 cases higher than it was last week.
There are 40 people from Simcoe County and one person from Muskoka hospitalized with COVID-19, which includes five new hospitalizations since Friday.
Hospitalizations jumped by 25 to 608, with 139 patients in intensive care.
"We are seeing a rapidly deteriorating situation with a record number of COVID cases and hospital admissions threatening to overwhelm our health care system", said Premier Ford.
The update also warns of possible exposures to the B.1.1.7 variant of concern on several Winnipeg Transit routes between April 2 and April 6. The number of cases for any city or region may differ slightly from what is reported by the province, because local units report figures at different times. There were 74,722 vaccine doses administered in the last 24 hour period.
Of the latest cases, 1,016 are in Toronto, 613 are in Peel, and 519 are in York Region.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
