Ontario COVID-19 daily cases, Sept. 13, 2021.

Ontario reported 600 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, a drop from 784 cases the day before.

Another six people have died as a result of the virus, but the province said two of the deaths occurred more than a month ago.

In a tweet, Health Minister Christine Elliott said 475 of the new cases are in those who are not vaccinated or have an unknown vaccine status, while 125 are fully vaccinated.

Of the 600 new cases, Toronto reported 114, while Peel saw 84 and York Region had 67.

The seven-day average stands at 715, up from three cases compared to the day before. The number of resolved cases is higher than new infections with 627 people recovered.

More than 23,600 tests were completed over the past 24 hours with a positivity rate of 3.2 per cent.

There are 189 people in the ICU with COVID-19, but Elliott emphasizes not all hospitals report numbers over the weekend. According to provincial data, 289 people are in hospital with COVID-19.

The province administered 29,182 vaccine doses in the past 24 hours, below the seven-day average which is 31,075, and a dip compared to the previous day when 40,220 doses were given.

More than 84 per cent of Ontarians aged 12 and over have one dose of the vaccine, and 78 per cent are fully vaccinated.
