Ontario is reporting 1,301 people hospitalized with COVID-19 on Monday after the province’s pandemic advisory table said late last week that the sixth wave of the virus may have crested, but that the Easter long weekend could change that.

The Ministry of Health did not release COVID-19 data on Easter Sunday. Hospitalizations that day reached 1,290, however it’s important to note that upwards of 10 per cent of hospitals did not provide data.

The number of patients in intensive care has passed 200 for the first time since March 16.

Of those hospitalized currently, 202 are in ICUs – up from 197 on Sunday. There are 91 patients with the virus who require the use of ventilators to keep breathing.

Ontario reported another 2,219 COVID-19 cases through limited PCR testing Monday, with 2,450 reported the previous day.

According to the science table’s latest modeling published last Thursday, daily case counts for the virus may have reached a plateau at around 100,000 new daily infections.

Dr. Peter Juni, who heads the science table, cautioned last week it is still too early to tell if cases have fully peaked amid this wave of the virus.

The ministry says 10,060 tests were completed Sunday. Test positivity rate sits at 18.7 per cent.

The province also logged three more deaths linked to the virus — one logged Sunday and two on Monday — bringing Ontario’s total COVID-19 death toll to 12,632.

Here are some other key pandemic indicators and figures from the Ministry of Health’s daily provincial update:

Active cases: 35,500.

Seven-day rolling average: 3.418.

Long-term care homes in outbreak: 136.

Vaccinations: 5,699 vaccine doses were administered on Sunday in Ontario, with a total of 32,397,809 given out to date. As of Monday, 90.1 per cent of Ontarians aged five or older have received at least one dose, while just over 86.7 per cent have gotten two doses.
