TORONTO — Ontario is reporting 1,191 hospitalizations and 329 patients in intensive care in its latest numbers today.

That's 90 fewer patients in hospital compared to numbers reported on Friday.

Health authorities are also reporting 14 further deaths attributed to the novel coronavirus.

The province reported 2,244 new COVID-19 cases, but that number is likely higher due to restricted PCR testing.

Authorities say 92.5 per cent of residents aged 12 and older have one dose of vaccine while 90.3 have two doses.

Of those aged 18 and older, 57 per cent have received a booster dose. Beginning Friday, youth aged 12 to 17 were able to book booster doses of a COVID-19 vaccine as long as six months had passed since their second dose.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Feb. 19, 2022.
