Coronavirus: Ottawa reports 5 new cases of COVID-19, bringing city total to 10

Ontario health officials confirmed five new cases of novel coronavirus in Ottawa Sunday morning, bringing the total in the city to 10.

It is the biggest single-day jump in cases in the city since the outbreak began.

The ages, gender, hospital location, and transmission source is listed as “pending” for all of the new cases, with the patients all reported to be in self-isolation.

The news comes after two new cases were confirmed in Ottawa on Saturday.

Meanwhile, provincial health officials announced a total of 39 new cases in Ontario Sunday morning, bringing the provincial total to 142, which marked the biggest single-day jump in the province.

The transmission source was listed as “pending” for all but one of the new cases Sunday morning.

The Ministry of Health told Global News the province still has no confirmed cases of community transmission, though “pending” means they are still gathering information.
