As testing increases, more cases of COVID-19 are being diagnosed across Ontario.
As of 10:30 am on Wednesday (March 25), Ontario is reporting 688 cases of the novel coronavirus in the province. According to Ontario's COVID-19 website, eight cases have been resolved and nine people have died of the virus.
That’s 100 hundred new cases in one day.
The website says 10,489 possible cases are under investigation, while 24,458 people have tested negative.
In Hamilton, there are four new confirmed cases of the virus, bringing the city’s total to 39.
A Hamilton woman in her 80s died of the virus Tuesday (March 24) morning.
Hers was the first reported death in the city related to the virus. She was a resident of Heritage Green Nursing Home in Stoney Creek, where an outbreak of the virus has been declared.
There is evidence of community spread across the province and Hamilton’s medical officer of health said earlier this week that at least two cases in Hamilton they have not been able to trace the origin of the infection.
Residents are reminded to wash their hands frequently and stay home unless it is not possible to do so.
