It says results are pending in another 2,189 tests.

Public Health Ontario reported a total of 910 deaths in long-term care facilities.
The Ministry of Long-Term Care reports that 1389 people have died in long-term care. Public Health is slower on reporting the numbers, so the Ministry’s statistics are considered more up-to-date.
