Ontario's daily coronavirus cases have dipped below 400, signalling an improvement in the province's pandemic battle.

Public Health Ontario revealed these welcome figures on Wednesday, stating that only 390 people were recorded with the virus. This moved Ontario's total number of cases up to 23,774.

Ontario as a whole has so far confirmed 1,962 deaths—a figure that is well below the initial predictions. On Wednesday, the Ontario government confirmed another 43 deaths that were related to coronavirus.

As of this article being written, the number of recovered patients accounts for some 76.5 percent of all cases in Ontario.

The number of cases in Ontario pales to that of Quebec. Montreal, in particular, seems to have become Canada's version of New York State as a coronavirus hot spot.

Quebec has recorded 44,ooo cases of coronavirus, almost double that of Ontario. Similarly, 3,647 of Canada's 5,912 coronavirus deaths have been in Quebec.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford has begun to announce his plan for loosening the lockdown restrictions with some stores and businesses being allowed to open up in the next few weeks.
