CORNWALL, Ontario – The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) ‘s latest local numbers on the COVID-19 pandemic show that there are 58 individuals in total who have been infected.

Of that 29 have recovered, but seven of those individuals have been hospitalized and three of those are in an Intesive Care Unit (ICU).

The majority of cases are male, with the most cases being those aged between 50 and 69-years-old. There are 20 men in this age bracket and 11 women who have contracted COVID-19.

There is one case of a male under 20 years of age who has been infected by COVID-19 in the EOHU region.

The EOHU does not share information about where in the region each case originated. Dr. Paul Roumeliotis explained repeatedly in the media that the geographic location of cases is irrelevant as COVID-19 is everywhere across the region and that residents should act accordingly.
