Note: windsoriteDOTca News makes every effort to track the changes in COVID-19 data each day. These numbers are subject to change as the Health Unit makes changes to their numbers throughout each day, and errors and omissions sometimes occur with their data. The Health Unit has also stated that case and contact management is delayed due to the recent surge in cases and that may affect some of the data. Please see this page for the latest, most up to date data throughout each day.

Fluctuating Daily Cases

Dr. Wajid Ahmed, Medical Officer of Health says the Health Unit will continue to provide daily new case numbers and updates despite recent swings between high and low cases being reported by Ontario’s labs.

Cases reported by the labs have fluctuated in the past number of days: 87 positive cases were reported Saturday, 270 were reported Sunday, and 35 were reported Monday.

“We realized early on in the pandemic that the community wants to be aware every day of what happens and how each of these numbers changed,” he said. “So we took that initiative to ensure that we are acting as the community interest is, with the caveat that, ‘please note, sometimes these fluctuations are better captured when we’re looking at a seven day moving average or an overall picture of the community.'”

“Overall I can still say that if you look at our seven day moving average, we are stabilizing,” he said. “Despite these fluctuations, overall our case counts in the region appear to be stabilizing.”
