Ontario is reporting 3,369 new cases of COVID-19 today and 29 more deaths linked to the virus.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says there are 1,050 new cases in Toronto, 819 in Peel Region, 286 in York Region, 158 in Ottawa and 157 in Durham Region.

The province says 2,152 people are hospitalized with COVID-19, 900 are in intensive care and 637 are on a ventilator.

Ontario says 107,700 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine were administered since Friday's report for a total of 5,247,684 shots given in the province.

The daily numbers come hours after an independent commission released its report examining Ontario's COVID-19 response in long-term care homes.

The scathing, 322-page report to the government called for an overhaul of the sector.
