Ontario is enhancing the public information it provides about the status
of COVID-19. As the outbreak evolves, Ontario has launched a new
dedicated web page and is changing how COVID-19 cases are being
reported to provide a more relevant summary of data from Public
Health Ontario that offers expanded information every day at 10:30
This daily epidemiological summary replaces the general information on
the status of COVID-19 cases that was previously provided twice daily
on the web page. The new summary provides more provincial and
regional data on confirmed cases, including trends of cases since the
outbreak began, geography, exposure and severity.
“Ontario has been diligently monitoring and taking decisive action to
stop the spread of COVID-19 and keep Ontarians informed,” said
Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “We will
continue to work with Public Health Ontario, public health units and the
health sector to have and report on the best possible data to help us
understand the scope of the COVID-19 outbreak in our province and
inform our collective response to keep all Ontarians safe and healthy.”
The daily summary is based on data recorded by local public health
units in the province's integrated Public Health Information System
(iPHIS), as of 4 p.m. the day before the summary is posted. iPHIS is the
Ministry of Health's disease reporting system, where data is regularly
