Ontario sets another one-day record with 1,426 COVID-19 cases Wednesday

Ontario has set yet another record for COVID-19 cases, topping 1,400 for the first time, as Peel has overtaken much bigger Toronto for the distinction of having the most daily new infections.

The Ministry of Health reported 1,426 more residents of the province tested positive for the highly contagious virus, the second day in a row for new highs that have been coming with increasing frequency.

“Locally, there are 468 new cases in Peel, 384 in Toronto, 180 in York Region, 63 in Durham and 62 in Hamilton,” Health Minister Christine Elliott said on Twitter.

The numbers come after Toronto announced an extension of restrictions for 28 days that will continue a ban on indoor dining at bars and restaurants, prohibit indoor fitness classes, keep meeting and event spaces, casinos and bingo halls closed but allow gyms to reopen.
