Drop in Ontario cases due to Toronto data error, had reported cases twice

According to CP24, the "drop" in Ontario coronavirus cases actually isn’t a drop, but rather a data correction. Toronto Public Health had apparently been recording cases twice.

This means that our latest data of 33 cases within a 24-hour period appears to be much more in line with the reality of the situation. Seventy-nine cases had been reported on Monday and 115 on Sunday but it seems that those figures were erroneous.

What the Health Minister Christine Elliot is calling a "routine data clean-up" now brings the total number of Ontario coronavirus cases to 40,914. 2,786 people have died from the virus already, and 36,456 more have recovered. In other words, just over 90% of people who have tested positive have now recovered.

This is not the only data discrepancy TPH has had to do a "routine data clean-up" on. This tweet embedded below, for example, is clearly from July 29.

Perhaps even more interestingly, the over-reporting of cases appears to be an international phenomenon. The exact same adjustments of data were recently found to be necessary over in the UK.

Currently, throughout Ontario, 60 people are currently in the hospital. 21 of these 60 are in an Intensive Care Unit and 12 of those 21 are currently on ventilators. There have been no new deaths or outbreaks reported in the past day’s time.

To sum up the significance of this new adjustment in the data in a nutshell, Ontario cases and deaths are in a rapid decline.
