ONTARIO - The Province of Ontario confirmed 1,487 new cases of the virus this morning. However that number is not entirely accurate because of a technical error approximately 40 case records from Toronto Public Health for November 14 remain unreported today, resulting in an underestimation of the daily counts.
Ontario also reported 10 new deaths related to COVID-19 today and the total now sits at 3,371. Meanwhile another 992 people have made a full recovery, bringing the total number of resolved cases to 79,295.
