Ontario is reporting 600 new cases of COVID-19 today and four more deaths linked to the virus.

Health Minister Christine Elliott says that 475 of those cases are in people who are not fully vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status.

The Ministry of Health says that due to a technical issue, data on COVID-19 related hospitalizations are not available.

According to the ministry, 189 people are in intensive care because of the virus and 100 are on a ventilator.

Elliott says that 84.4 per cent of Ontarians over the age of 12 have at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine while 78.1 per cent have two doses.

She says 21,183,369 vaccine doses have been administered in the province.
