The lowest amount of new coronavirus cases in almost 12 weeks has been reported in Ontario, according to CTV News.

There were 173 new cases reported by Health officials on Thursday which is the lowest number of cases since the 150 reported on March 28.

"With 220 more resolved, we continue to see a persistent decline in the number of active cases, with 1,455 fewer active cases since last Tuesday," Elliott said in a tweet on Thursday morning.

Just three additional deaths have occurred in the last 24 hours due to the virus—the lowest recorded daily amount in months. Since the pandemic began in Ontario there have been at least 2,553 coronavirus deaths.

Thursdays numbers show a total of 32,917 cases in Ontario with 28,004 of them resolved.

The majority of new cases were reported in Toronto and Peel region which are still in Stage 1 of the reopening phase. Eight new cases were confirmed in Windsor-Essex on Thursday, though the area is still in Stage 1. In York Region there were 14 new cases reported and the area is moving to Stage 2 on Friday.

There were 25,278 coronavirus tests in Ontario since Wednesday and the province has recently been performing over 20,000 tests per day with over one million in total.

There are just below 25,000 tests currently being investigated.

The number of coronavirus patients in Ontario hospitals is now 351 and the number is continuing to decline. There are 84 patients in ICU and 60 on a ventilator.
