The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit on Wednesday reported the deaths of nine long-term care and retirement home residents: a man in his 60s, four women and one man in their 80s, and two women and one man in their 90s.

Dr. Wajid Ahmed, medical officer of health, explained that some of Wednesday's case count was due to reconciling cases that had been misreported by the lab, and the count does not necessarily reflect the data from a single day. The previous high was 272 on December 31.

The health unit is now monitoring 45 active outbreaks in the community including 21 in long-term care and retirement facilities. Two were members of the general community, a woman in her 50s and man in his 70s.

Just over 2,800 of those cases remain active, according to the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.

The health unit also reported 11 additional deaths in the region connected to COVID-19.

Windsor-Essex has had a total of 10,278 confirmed cases, including 7,229 people who have recovered.

There are 21 outbreaks at long-term care or retirement homes along with 19 workplace outbreaks, two hospital outbreaks, one school outbreak and two community outbreaks.
