Ontario records over 400 new COVID-19 cases but over half were impacted by reporting delay

Ontario recorded another day with more than 400 new COVID-19 cases yesterday, but CTV reports that the province says over 200 infections were impacted by a reporting delay.

Health officials reported 415 new cases of COVID-19 yesterday but admitted that 223 of those cases were a result of a “laboratory-to-public health reporting delay.”

That would mean that Ontario reported only 192 new cases, which is the lowest number since March 28 when 151 new infections were recorded.

The total case count for the province now, is 30,617.  Of those, there are 2,426 deaths and 24,252 have recovered.

That works out to be 79% recovered.
