Province reporting 1,747 new cases of COVID-19, but says high number may be artificially inflated

 

The province is reporting 1,747 new cases of COVID-19 today (Sunday, March 14) and 15 deaths linked to the virus.

There are 545 new cases in Toronto, 352 in Peel and 163 in York Region. Hamilton had 93 cases and Halton had 38.

“Today's case count may be higher than expected due to a data catch-up process related to the provincial CCM system,” said Health Minister Christine Elliott.

Since yesterday, 1,167 more cases are considered resolved and over 47,600 additional tests completed.

As of 8:00 p.m. yesterday, 1,158,355 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Ontario, Elliott reports.

Today’s full case data is available at the province’s website.
