Ontario reported 287 new cases of COVID-19 Sunday, a decrease from the 346 new cases recorded on Saturday.

“Locally, there are 66 new cases in the Region of Waterloo, 42 in Toronto, 38 in Grey Bruce, 26 in Peel Region and 16 in the Porcupine Health Unit region,” Health Minister Christine Elliott said in a tweet Sunday.

Today’s data is based on more than 18,524 completed tests, with 15,880,647 done since last year.

The government also reported 12 new fatalities, bringing the province’s total coronavirus-related death count to 9,126 people since the pandemic began in 2020.

The Ministry of Health says 286 people are in intensive care because of the virus and 183 are on a ventilator.

Ontario says it administered 202,672 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine since Saturday’s report, for a total of more than 14 million.

Meanwhile, Toronto Mayor John Tory received the second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine Sunday morning at a mass immunization clinic where 25,000 people are set to get shots.

The city is holding the clinic at Scotiabank Arena, home of the Toronto Raptors and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Toronto has administered more than 3.2 million vaccine doses since the start of the immunization campaign.
