Ontario Just Broke Its Record For New COVID-19 Cases Again

Today's numbers are over 1,800.

The province is recording yet another single-day high for new COVID-19 cases in Ontario.

Christine Elliot announced Friday's infection count just before 10:30 a.m.

The province is reporting 1,855 new cases today, a significant increase from yesterday's 1,478.

Twenty new deaths were reported in addition to the cases.

Of the new cases, there are 517 in Peel, 494 in Toronto, 189 in York, and 130 in Halton.*

These numbers come from over 58,000 processed tests, which is above the province's goal of 50,000 processed tests daily.

The province's modelling data predicts that Ontario will see 2,000 new infections a day by December 1 unless there's a drastic change in measures.

Since then, Toronto and Peel have been placed into lockdown — aka the grey zone of the new provincial COVID-19 framework.

To date, the province is reporting 109,361 cases of COVID-19.
