These figures lie in the average for the past few days, with the number of active cases falling, 36 fewer than on Friday, for a total of 3,938.

The death toll goes to 9,814. Since the start of the pandemic, 594,419 cases have been recorded in Ontario.

In the past 24 hours, just over 32,600 screening tests have been performed.

In the health system, there is a sharp drop in hospitalizations (-23) as one more patient has been admitted to intensive care, bringing this number to 164, of which 146 are not adequately vaccinated or have not shared their vaccination status.

Regarding vaccination, 30,369 doses were administered yesterday. 83% of eligible Ontarians are now fully immunized.

Also, starting today, Ontarians with a birthdate between May and August can download their proof of vaccination with a QR code.

Yesterday, people born between January and April were able to download their new document, while those born between September and December will be able to do so as of Sunday.

This gradual three-day approach aims to ensure a smooth user experience, depending on the province.

In addition, all Ontarians, regardless of their birth month, will have access to the QR code download website starting Monday.

Ontario will switch to the vaccine passport with a QR code starting next Friday, October 22.
