The city, which has recorded a total of 125,497 cases since the start of the pandemic, has recently been struggling to curb the spread of variants of concern (VOCs).

"Infections due to VOCs were associated with a 91% relative increase in COVID-19 deaths and a 36% relative increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations in Toronto," a statement from TPH reads.

Toronto is currently operating under Ontario's new stay-at-home order, which was announced on April 7, 2021.
