Hospitalization in Ottawa as Ontario sets new records




Ottawa Public Health reports five new deaths from COVID-19 in Ottawa on Friday as the state reports record hospitalizations.

Over 2,400 people were hospitalized with COVID-19 across the state, breaking the previous record set in April.

In Ottawa, the health unit recorded eight more hospitalizations from COVID-19, bringing the city’s total to 43. This is more than double the 21 hospitalizations at this point last week.

This number reflects those admitted to Ottawa hospitals with COVID-19 and does not include those who caught it during hospitalization or were transferred from other health units.

The state also reported 43 new deaths across Ontario, 42 of which occurred in 10 days and one died more than a month ago.

The number of ICU attendees across Ontario has skyrocketed to 338. Of these, 232 have not been completely vaccinated or the status of vaccination is unknown.

Ottawa has five ICU patients, two more than Thursday.

Ottawa Public Health has also reported 720 new cases. However, because the Ontario government has restricted access to PCR tests, the number may be much lower than the actual number.

The positive rate for those taking the test is currently over 37 percent in Ottawa.

Ottawa’s Key COVID-19 Statistics

  • COVID-19 cases / 100,000 cases (December 30th to January 5th): 601.3 (decreased from 652.3)

  • Ottawa positive rate (December 31st to January 6th): 37.7%

  • Number of reproductions (7-day average): 0.86

  • Known active cases: 8,177 (-212)

A recall value greater than 1 indicates that the virus has spread and each case has infected multiple contacts. If it is less than 1, it means that the spread is slowing down.

The number of known active cases is the number of confirmed cases (based on tests) minus the number of cases resolved and deaths.
