Status of cases in Ontario - April 3, 2020

Ontario is now providing a more detailed summary of COVID-19 cases in the province that will be updated each day at 10:30 a.m.


This daily epidemiologic summary replaces the information on the status of COVID-19 cases that was previously provided twice daily on this page. The new summary provides more provincial and regional data on confirmed cases, demographics and trends of cases since the outbreak began including geography, exposure and severity. 


The daily summary is based on data reported by the 34 public health units across Ontario and recorded in the province’s integrated Public Health Information System (iPHIS). iPHIS is the Ministry of Health’s disease reporting system where data is regularly updated. Data for each day’s summary will be pulled from iPHIS at 4:00 p.m. the previous day
