There were 23 new laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa Sunday, but no new deaths, according to Ottawa Public Health (OPH).

The total number of people in Ottawa confirmed to have been infected with the virus now sits at 345.

Confirmed cases, however, are just a snapshot because of the limits of testing.

There are also six outbreaks at various institutions in the city, including at the Ottawa Hospital's Civic campus.

OPH has said it's likely thousands have contracted the respiratory illness already.
