Each number included in this tracking data represents a human being who is loved and who has experienced the terrible toll of COVID-19: staff who have gone to work despite the risk and the fear; residents and patients who have contracted COVID-19; families and communities who have lost their loved ones; staff who have made the ultimate sacrifice. You are in our hearts. To the media, the Public Health and Ministry staff who have been tracking and compiling this information for public scrutiny, thank you for your work. To all of you, we give our commitment to advocate to the best of our ability and to do everything we can do for the best protection and care for all affected.

 

Since the week of March 12, the Ontario Health Coalition has been tracking all people who have been infected with COVID-19 in outbreaks in health care settings including hospitals, long-term care, retirement homes, public health units, clinics and congregate care settings, as well as among other health professionals such as paramedics. This has become a gargantuan task but an important one because it enables us to see more fully than is possible from the government data where the spread in health care is happening and whether infection control measures are working to control it. The evidence shows that by every measure the outbreaks in health care settings are not under control and that more effective measures are needed to protect residents, patients and staff. Both the number of outbreaks and the number of people infected in outbreaks has risen dramatically between our last tracking update April 22 (included data up to April 21) and this update up to May 5.
Here are the key findings from the most recent tracking contained in this report of cases in health care settings across Ontario up to the afternoon of May 5:

  • The total number of people infected by COVID-19 in health and congregate care settings including staff and patients/residents is 7,894 as of May 5, up from 3,783 in our last report containing data up to April 21. This total has almost doubled in two weeks.
  • The percentage of the total number of Ontarians infected with COVID-19 that are health care workers continues to rise. By May 5, out of a total of 18,722 people confirmed to have been infected 3,013 or 16.1 percent were health care workers according to Public Health Ontario. From April 2 to May 5 the total number health care workers infected increased by 2,784 workers, from 229 to 3,013, and the share of the total number of confirmed cases in Ontario made up of health care workers increased from 9.6 percent to 16.1 percent (an increase of 67.7 percent in a month).
  • The total number outbreaks in health care and congregate care settings that the Ontario Health Coalition found as of May 5 is 459 (including 107 resolved) in 403 facilities including hospitals, long-term care homes, retirement homes, Public Health Units, clinics and other congregate care settings. As of May 5 Public Health Ontario was reporting 292 outbreaks in public hospitals and long-term care. (Public Health Ontario does not report aggregate numbers for outbreaks in retirement homes, private hospitals and other health and congregate care settings.) By both measures, this is a significant increase. At April 21, the Ontario Health Coalition had tracked 283 facilities with outbreaks and Public Health Ontario was reporting 160 outbreaks in public hospitals and long-term care homes. (See Chart 2.)
  • Among previously announced outbreaks across all health care settings, some have been resolved while other existing outbreaks have spread. Despite the positive fact that some outbreaks have resolved, distressingly, the net result remains that there more outbreaks and significantly higher numbers of people infected in these settings. From April 22 – May 5 we found 107 of 459 outbreaks resolved (leaving 352 active), up from 283 on April 21. Among a number of hospitals and long-term care homes with resolved outbreaks we are finding new outbreaks declared.
  • The total number of patients/residents that have been infected by COVID-19 in health and congregate care settings has also increased. By May 5 we have tracked a total of 4,951 patients/residents who have contracted COVID-19 in health and congregate care settings. This is an increase of 3,015 (or 155.7 percent) since April 21 when we had tracked 1,936 patients/residents infected in health and congregate care settings. Public Health Ontario’s data also shows a steep increase. As of May 5, they report 2,830 residents/patients infected in hospital and long-term care outbreaks, an increase of 1,104 (or 64 percent) since April 21 when they reported 1,726 patients/residents infected in hospital and long-term care.
  • Tragically, the death toll among patients, residents and staff in health and congregate care settings has also increased dramatically. The Ontario Health Coalition is deeply sorry to report that as of May 5, we found a total of 1,878 patients and residents deceased in outbreaks in health and congregate care settings, up from 433 deceased as at April 21. That increase amounts to a heartbreaking 1,445 residents and patients over two weeks or an increase of 333.7 percent.
  • We have added Chart 3 tracking the large outbreaks (more than 10 people infected with COVID-19) in health and congregate care settings. As at April 21 we had found 83 large outbreaks. By May 5 we found 138 large outbreaks: 80 in long-term care homes; 29 in retirement homes, 13 in public hospitals, 15 in other congregate care settings.

Note about Methodology: In order to compile this list, we have tracked the daily updates from the 34 Public Health Units in Ontario, including the epidemiological details and outbreak reports where they are publicly available. We have searched each facility name to identify whether it is long-term care or a retirement home and to find details about the cases reported in the aggregate numbers by Public Health Units. We have tracked and compiled media reports of outbreaks with details from across Ontario that contain credible source information (for example, they cited the Public Health Unit, long-term care home administration or hospital administration). Local Public Health Units report in different ways with varying levels of detail. Some do not provide breakdowns of staff/patients/residents. Local Public Health Units usually post outbreak reports for public hospitals, long-term care and retirement homes. The provincial-level information from Public Health Ontario does not include retirement homes or other health care and congregate care/living settings. We have tried to capture everything we can about retirement homes and other health care settings in addition to hospitals (public and private) and long-term care homes using the methodology outlined here. We have not been able to catch up on shelters, group homes and all the various congregate care settings. For that we apologize and will try to capture as much as we can going forward. It is not clear why Public Health Ontario’s numbers for the outbreaks in long-term care and public hospitals are lower than ours. We have repeatedly checked ours for accuracy and we have provided information in the most transparent way possible. In addition, Public Health Units are reporting retirement home outbreaks separately and these numbers should be available to Public Health Ontario but Public Health Ontario does not report the aggregate numbers for retirement homes. Given the number of outbreaks in these private for-profit homes, it is important that the spread in them is also tracked and that they are subject to improved public health measures (and the support needed) to protect residents and staff. Overall, we have tracked every individual case and report in the most credible manner possible and have included sources for each report in the footnotes.
