Public Health Ontario has revealed that the province has recorded over 10,000 new daily cases of COVID-19 for the very first time.
Also, Public Health Ontario has reported another four deaths connected to the virus.
COVID-19 cases have been increasing in Ontario due to the highly infectious Omicron variant.
Experts have disclosed that the exact number of cases is likely far higher than the cases reported daily because a lot of public health units have reached their testing capacity.
However, the race to offer COVID-19 vaccine boosters continues in Ontario, as some clinics opened on Christmas Day.
