Ontario showed more positive signs Wednesday that it was gaining ground in its battle with COVID-19.

The province recorded 411 new cases of COVID-19, the lowest since Sept. 25 when 409 cases were confirmed.

“Ontario is reporting 411 cases of #COVID19 and nearly 30,500 tests completed. Locally, there are 97 new cases in Toronto, 72 in Peel, 35 in Waterloo, 26 in York Region and 25 in Hamilton.,” Health Minister Christine Elliott tweeted Wednesday.

There were 33 deaths recorded Wednesday, including 11 deaths that had occurred in April or May but had not made it into the official count.

Deaths reflect both the seriousness of the third wave, which peaked with more than 4,000 cases a day, and also the ongoing risk of the variants.

Another key indicator which lags behind the daily case numbers is hospitalizations.

Hospitals were treating 571 patients with COVID-19 Wednesday.

There were 466 people in intensive care, including some patients transferred from Manitoba, and 314 were on ventilators.

The hospitalizations remain above levels that impact other patient services but have been trending steadily downward.

Ontario put 177,506 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine into arms Tuesday, and has administered over 10.4 million doses in total.

Almost 1.29 million Ontarians are considered fully vaccinated with two doses.
