Here’s an update on COVID-19 cases in Ontario as well as in the greater Kawarthas region.

Today, Ontario is reporting 945 new cases. However, this total includes only 112 cases for Toronto, due to a data error from Toronto Public Health’s migration to Ontario’s Contact and Case Management system. Toronto Public Health’s actual case count for February 10 as reported on its website is 411, meaning the actual provincial case count today is 1,244.

Today’s new cases include 8 more cases of the B.1.1.7 UK variant. The seven-day average of new cases has decreased by 109 to 1,264, although this average is based on the under-reported case count in Toronto.

In the greater Kawarthas region, there are 17 new cases to report and 7 additional cases resolved, with the number of active cases across the region increasing by 11 to 107. There have been 2 new COVID-related deaths in Kawartha Lakes.
