Ontario is reporting 550 new COVID-19 cases today, the biggest single-day increase so far, including 21 new deaths.
The new provincial total of 5,276 includes 174 deaths and 2,074 resolved.
The number of people in hospital dropped since Tuesday, from 614 to 605, but more people are now in intensive care and on ventilators.
A backlog of pending tests that had nearly been cleared has now grown, and is up to more than 1,100.
