2 new cases and 2 new deaths from COVID-19 reported in Middlesex-London


The Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU) has reported two new COVID-19 cases and two new deaths, ending four consecutive days of zero deaths in the region. 

The latest to die from the virus are a woman in her 60s associated with a retirement home and man in his 80s from a long-term care home. 

Since the outbreak began in the region with a single case in January, 45 people have died from the virus and 25 of them have been associated with seniors’ homes. 

In addition to the new deaths, the MLHU also reported two new cases in the region, both of which are associated with seniors’ facilities. 

Currently, nine seniors’ homes in the region have declared outbreaks, meaning that at least one staff or resident has contracted the virus. 

On Tuesday, 25 people had been admitted to the London Health Sciences Centre for COVID-19, including a patient admitted to the Children’s Hospital. Of the people hospitalized, five are in critical care units. 

Meanwhile, the health unit marked four more cases resolved, bringing the total number of inactive cases to 303 out of the 458 cases reported over the course of the pandemic.
