Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is reporting 67 new COVID-19 cases and two deaths Tuesday, including a woman in her 20s, the city's youngest COVID-19 victim.

Many key indicators that rose to record levels during this third wave of the pandemic are now in decline.

Numbers to watch

75.3: The weekly incidence rate, a rolling seven-day total of new COVID-19 cases expressed per 100,000 residents.

130: The combined number of patients currently in intensive care in Ottawa, according to the latest updates from local hospitals.

47: The number of those patients who have COVID-19.

20: The number of COVID-19 patients from Ottawa in an Ottawa ICU, according to OPH.

27: The number of COVID-19 patients from other regions in an Ottawa ICU.
