Ontario is reporting 10,436 new COVID-19 cases and three deaths from the virus today.

The daily infection tally broke the record set on Christmas day — which saw 10,412 cases — for the most cases reported in a single day since the pandemic began in Ontario.

Provincial data show that 190 people are currently in intensive care due to COVID-19, including 104 people on ventilators.

In total, the province reported 726 people hospitalized with COVID-19.

A government website noted that 10 per cent of hospitals did not submit daily data and the number of hospitalized patients is expected to increase. 

The province says 81 per cent of all residents aged five and older have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine and 86 per cent have at least one shot.
