The province's daily epidemiological summary released Sunday, which provides data from one day earlier, confirms that 326 new cases of COVID-19 were reported on Saturday, up slightly from the 323 reported one day prior. Today, the testing number dropped to 17,014.

Almost four out of every five cases - 78 per cent - are now considered resolved, according to epidemiological statistics released by the province Sunday morning.

A total of 781 people remain in hospital, 118 of them in intensive care and 90 on respirators.

There have been 27,859 cases confirmed in Ontario, and 21,810 are listed as recovered, which means 14 days have passed since the date of symptom onset and the individual is not now hospitalized.

The website says seven deaths have occurred in Burlington. The province says 2,266 people have died of the disease, while 21,810 cases have been resolved.

Six staff members in long-term care homes have died of the virus. Public Health Ontario typically lags behind the reporting of the ministry.

That total number of confirmed cases overall are 27,533 and total deaths 2,247.

However, that is an overall decline of just over five per cent since two weeks ago, when 341 new cases were reported on May 15. There have been 1,802 cases confirmed in health care workers employed at a facility in outbreak. There are 74 probable cases and 717 total cases. Public Health Sudbury and Districts is another in the region with a clean bill of health, along with the Timiskaming Health Unit.
