Ontario reports a further 654 cases of COVID-19 and two more deaths, according to its latest report released Saturday morning.

Ontario has administered 37,715 vaccine doses since its last daily update, with a total of 22,042,483 vaccines given at 20.00 the previous night.

According to Star’s vaccine tracker, 11,334,775 people in Ontario received at least one shot. This corresponds to about 87 percent of the eligible population 12 years and older and corresponds to 76.3 percent of the total population, including those who are not yet eligible for the vaccine.

The province says 10,707,708 people have completed their vaccinations, meaning they have had both doses. This corresponds to approximately 82.1 percent of the eligible population 12 years and older and corresponds to 72 percent of the total population, including those who are not yet eligible for the vaccine.

The province now contains data that reflect admissions and cases by vaccination status. Ontario warns that the process may cause inconsistencies between other hospitalization numbers collected using another process and that the data may not match the daily COVID-19 cases.

The province reports that 385 cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in unvaccinated people, 30 were partially vaccinated and 190 cases in fully vaccinated people. Again, the province warns that the data may not match the daily COVID cases because records with a missing or invalid health card number cannot be linked.

The province says data on admissions by vaccination status will not be updated on Sundays and Mondays due to incomplete weekend reporting.

The province also includes data on COVID-19 in schools as part of its daily reporting.

There are 774 schools with a reported case of COVID out of 4,844 schools in the province or 15.98 percent.

There are 126 new cases reported Friday for a total of 2,975 reported school-related COVID cases in Ontario.

The seven-day average is 544 cases daily. Ontario’s seven-day average for deaths is 5.4 daily.

The province says 31,123 tests were conducted the previous day and a 1.8 percent positivity.

There are currently 258 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in the province, including 130 patients on intensive care who test positive for COVID-19. There are 94 people on fans.

Locally, there are 123 cases in Toronto, 80 in the Peel Region, 66 in the York Region, 50 in Ottawa and 47 in Hamilton.

Meanwhile, the province reports that there are no new deaths in long-term care, so the number of residents who have died remains the same at 3,822, in the latest report released by the province.

There are two fewer nursing homes in outbreaks, a total of 12 or 1.9 percent of LTC homes in the province.

These data are self-reported by the nursing homes to the Ministry of Long-Term Care. Daily cases and deaths may not immediately correspond to the figures submitted by the local public health units due to delays in reporting time.

There are two further confirmed cases of the Alpha variant first discovered in the United Kingdom, for a total of 146,487 cases.

There are no new cases in Ontario of the Beta variant first found in South Africa or the Gamma variant first found in Brazil. The total amounts for both of these variants are 1,503 and 5,229 cases, respectively.

There are 46 more cases of the Delta variant first discovered in India, a total of 19,126 cases.
