Ontario reports 3,797 hospitalizations, 56 new deaths
Currently, the province says more than 600 people are in ICUs
Ontario reported 3,797 hospitalizations on Sunday, as well as 56 additional deaths.
There are currently 604 people in intensive care units provincewide as a result of COVID-19, up by four from 600 people in ICUs on Saturday.
Of those people, 375 require ventilators to keep breathing, down slightly from 378 people requiring ventilators as reported on Saturday. However, it's important to note that not all hospitals report figures on the weekend.
The province is also reporting at least 5,833 new COVID-19 cases, although that is no longer a reliable indicator of the spread of the infectious disease given the restrictions on testing access.
