Ontario’s chief medical officer of health, Dr. Kieran Moore, is expected to provide an update on the province’s ongoing COVID-19 response and vaccination efforts on Tuesday after the province saw four consecutive days of cases above 200 following weeks of being below that level.
However, due to the "direct effects" of Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccination program, Moore said last week that an estimated 31,280 cases of COVID-19 among people over 18 have been prevented in the province.
Moore added that approximately two out of 10 eligible people, however, have yet to be vaccinated.
Ontario reported 218 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, a drop from the 258 it saw a day prior. An additional two deaths were also recorded.
