Ontario is reporting 70 new cases of the novel coronavirus, the lowest day-over-day increase since the virus first started sweeping through Ontario in March.

The provincial total now sits just shy of 40,000, at 39,967.

The province is making a push at a full week of day-over-day increases below 100 cases, with Saturday being the sixth day.

Thirteen cases come from the Ottawa area, 13 from the Peel area, with seven coming from Windsor, and one in Toronto.

"For the sixth consecutive day, Ontario is reporting fewer than 100 cases of COVID19, with 70 new cases, a 0.2% increase. With 107 more resolved, we continue to see a decline in active cases. Yesterday, the province processed over 26,000 tests," said Health Minister Christine Elliott on Twitter.

"Hospitalizations and ICU admissions both declined with the number of vented patients remaining stable. Locally, 29 of Ontario’s 34 public health units are reporting five or fewer cases with 15 of them reporting no new cases," she continued.

The province also saw one new death, bringing the provincial total to 2,784.

Only seven cases remain among long-term care residents. There still remains 36 active cases among staff.
