Recent data shows the majority of the active cases are located in Timmins and in First Nations communities in the James Bay and Hudson Bay regions.

Last week, the province identified Waterloo Region as a Delta variant hot spot.

There has now been 657,491 second doses administered to 14.5 per cent of adults in B.C., and 74.4 per cent of those over 12 have had at least one dose of vaccine.

Over two million Ontarians have now received both doses of the vaccine and the City of Toronto announced that 20 per cent of residents are now fully vaccinated.

The average of daily new admissions to ICUs has also decreased substantially, according to Critical Care Services Ontario, a government agency that compiles a daily report for hospitals and health organizations. As the Hamilton Spectator reports, the current approach has been to recommend protocols.

The 13 further deaths reported by the Ministry of Health push the official toll to 8,974.

The Communist Party has denied the allegations. "This is not just about confronting or taking on China", the official said. China also is expected to be on the agenda at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting, USA officials said.

Ontario's average weekly incidence rate is 23.5 cases per 100,000 people, which is down by 30.1 per cent from the prior seven-day period.

Ontario is reporting 296 new COVID-19 cases and 13 additional deaths on Tuesday. There are 20 known active cases.

Canada topped Israel, the United Kingdom and Chile in first doses, however those countries have a greater percentage who are fully vaccinated with the second dose. Hospitalizations are down more than 100 since one week ago and ICU numbers have dropped almost 100 in the last week. It did the same for this year to provide businesses with some pandemic relief.

Of the new cases reported today, 67 are from Toronto, 47 cases are from Peel, and nine are from Simcoe-Muskoka. A screener at the site said about 60 people were turned away after all doses available were administered.

Ontario's COVID-19 Science Advisory Table estimates that the delta variant now accounts for about 40 per cent of all new cases in the province, though some of that figure is attributable to a drop in the share of new cases caused by the B117 alpha variant, first identified in the United Kingdom. More than 80 per cent of staff at St. Joseph's Care Group have received at least one vaccine, while the figure is 70 per cent among staff at Pioneer Ridge.
