Reports from local public health units say that there have been 48 new deaths, 31 higher than provincial reports. This is largely due to discrepancies in data.
Yesterday data showed that the recovery rate in Ontario was higher than the number of active cases.
Numbers also show that 925 patients were admitted to hospitals across Ontario, up 15 from yesterday.
