Ontario health officials are reporting a one-day drop in the number of new COVID-19 cases with fewer than 3,000 reported, but the positivity rate remains high.
The new modelling shows that Ontario's long-term care sector continues to be devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic and ICU occupancy is increasing with "real consequences for health".
Since yesterday, 118 people have been hospitalized with COVID-19, and 22 COVID patients have been admitted to intensive care units.
Public Health Ontario says 44,802 COVID-19 tests were completed across the province and there are 43,154 tests remain under investigation. The fatality count could double from 50 to 100 deaths a day at the end of February.

Premier says he "couldn't be any clearer" as worst-case scenario predicts 15,000 cases a day.

More than half of the intensive care units in the province are full or close to full. As of January 9, the total number of long-term care residents infected with COVID-19 who have died during the second wave is 1,119.
The province said that 385 of those patients are in intensive care, and 262 of them are breathing with the assistance of a ventilator.
Front-line health workers and long-term care residents are the first priorities for vaccines, and Canada's chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam said Tuesday we should start to see the impact of those groups being vaccinated within a month or two.
Officials also reported on Tuesday that 41 more people have died due to the disease, including 23 people who were residents of long-term care homes.
The science table warned that variant B.1.1.7, commonly referred to as the United Kingdom variant, could "drive much higher case counts, ICU occupancy and mortality as community transmission occurs".
The Ontario government has declared a second provincial emergency during the COVID-19 pandemic as case numbers continue to spike.

"We have looked, certainly, at the measures put in place in other jurisdictions, other countries, and curfews have been put in place with multiple other measures", Yaffe said.
