The city of Ottawa has reported 54 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Sunday. This represents a new downward trend in new daily cases.

For the previous two weeks the rolling averages have been 102.7 and 92.1 new cases per day respectively. There have been four consecutive days in Ottawa where the number of new cases totaled over 100.

According to CTV News, the total confirmed cases of the virus in Ottawa now stand at 5427, with 297 deaths (no new deaths in the past testing period).  There are currently 37 people hospitalized for the virus, down from the previous 39, of which nine are currently in intensive care.

816 of these 5427 cases are still active, down from 847 on Saturday, with a further 85 people having recovered from the virus, bringing the total number of people recovered to 4611.

The province of Ontario continues to step up its ability to test people for the virus. The past 24 hours saw 44,138 new tests performed. Out of the last batch of people tested in Ottawa, 3.9% tested positive.

So far in this second wave of the virus, both new cases and deaths are significantly less than the first time around.

ICU occupancy in Ottawa currently stands at 44%, with 15% of all ventilators being occupied.
