However, in a tweet Sunday morning, Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott said that not all hospitals report data on weekends.

The provincial data showed there were 2,001 new cases of the virus reported in Ontario Sunday.

However, experts have cautioned that this is likely an undercount, as the province has implemented more stringent rules regarding who can access a COVID-19 test.

According to Elliott, so far in Ontario, a total of 31,673,271 COVID-19 vaccines have been administered.

“92.6 per cent of Ontarians 12+ have one dose and 90.5 per cent have two doses,” she wrote in a tweet.

Elliott said if you still need your first, second or booster dose “it’s not too late.”
