TORONTO, ON., June 15, 2020 — Today, Toronto is reporting 90 new COVID-19 infections in Toronto, which is lower than its 7-day average of 98. The total number of active cases in Toronto is 1,367 with 13,420 total cases reported. To date, 11,098 people have recovered, an increase of 117 since yesterday. Sadly, in total 985 people have lost their lives to the coronavirus but there have been zero deaths reported since June 7.

Toronto Public Health is reporting that currently there are 296 people hospitalized, along with 71 in ICU and 54 people on ventilators. In total there have been a total of 160 COVID-19 outbreaks in Toronto.

“Today, the Premier announced that Toronto, Peel and Windsor-Essex will continue to remain in phase 1. I believe this is reasonable given our current circumstances. I know that our local businesses may also benefit from some time to get ready for safe reopening,” said Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health.

Active COVID-19 cases in Toronto, Peel and Windsor-Essex

Of the three remaining Ontario public health regions yet to move on to Stage 2 of reopening, as of Monday, Toronto still has 1,367 active cases of COVID-19, while Peel Region has 616. Windsor-Essex County Public Health currently has 425 remaining active cases of COVID-19.

“I am encouraged to see the number of COVID-19 cases reported to us continue to decline,” said Dr. de Villa. “We are getting closer to our goal of 14 days of decrease but not quite there yet. While this indicator is progressing, we continue to keep a close eye on new hospitalizations and outbreaks, and I’m happy to report these indicators are improving and continue to trend in the right direction, suggesting fewer severe infections and less disease activity among our most
vulnerable,” said Dr. de Villa.
