Ottawa Public Health is reporting the lowest increase in new cases of COVID-19 since March, when the pandemic first began, but the number of new deaths remains relatively high.

Just two new laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 were announced in Ottawa Public Health's epidemiology report Saturday, the lowest number since March 15. The total number of cases confirmed in Ottawa since the first case on March 11 is now 1,887.

Ottawa Public Health has said the number of infections in Ottawa is much higher than the number of laboratory-confirmed cases.

However, eight new deaths were also reported Saturday, bringing the total death toll in Ottawa to 228.

Since May 11, when 10 new deaths were reported, the number of new deaths reported each day has varied between 0 and 9. The highest number of new deaths reported in a single day was on May 4, when 35 deaths were announced.

Ottawa Public Health says 1,481 confirmed cases are now resolved--16 more since Friday--accounting for 78 per cent of all cases to date.

41 people remain in the hospital.

There are ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks at 19 institutions including 10 long-term care homes, five retirement homes, two hospitals, and two group homes.
