Ontario is reporting 454 new cases of COVID-19 today and nine new deaths related to the virus.

The province says, however, that the death tally only includes those that occurred over the last month.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says 249 of the new infections are in people who are not fully vaccinated or whose immunization status is unknown.

She says 243 people are currently in hospital due to the virus, including 182 who are not vaccinated or whose vaccination status isn’t known.

Elliott says 136 COVID-19 patients are in intensive care, 120 of whom are not vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status.

The province says 88.5 per cent of residents 12 and older have received one dose of a COVID-19 shot, and 85.2 per cent have had two.
