Ontario confirms 370 new cases of coronavirus, 84 more deaths

Ontario's garden centre operators say they're frustrated by new government orders meant to ease the restrictions they've been under as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Canada's chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam said during a COVID-19 briefing in Ottawa that the recall of 5,500 testing kits won't affect the national testing goal of 60,000 people a day, since that figure is based on systems already in use.

Trudeau said Canada has spent over $850 million in the global fight against the virus, in both Canadian and worldwide COVID-19 research.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced he spoke with political and industrial leaders around the world Monday morning to work together on accelerating global development of COVID-19 vaccines, treatment and testing.

"We're seeing a gradual downward slope in the public domain and the lower we get, the more we can open up... and get people back working, get people out and about", Ford said. "At this time, the cause of death is being determined, but the employee had tested positive for COVID-19".

Another 84 COVID-19 deaths were reported in Ontario since yesterday.

According to Halton Region's COVID-19 website (which was updated on May 4), 478 people have been diagnosed in the region and 22 people have died of the virus.

According to the province's public health report today, 36 of those deaths were residents of long-term care homes. In total, 1,216 people have died since the outbreak began.

The number of resolved cases is 12,005 - or two-thirds of the province's overall cases - and 1,010 patients are in hospital, with 232 in intensive care and 174 in intensive care on ventilators.

Testing capacity continues to increase.

About 12 per cent of the province's cases reported since January 15 have been hospitalized. In all, 327,505 tests have been completed in Ontario.

Internationally, a total of 3,435,894 cases and 239,604 deaths have been confirmed in 215 countries, areas or territories.

Symptoms include cough, fever, difficulty breathing and pneumonia in both lungs and may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure.
