There have been five more deaths in Ottawa related to COVID-19, according to public health's report on Tuesday, February 8.

The data from Ottawa Public Health (OPH) brings the city's total death toll to 720.

However, the numbers in other areas of the report continue to drop.

Currently, there are 50 people hospitalized with an active COVID-19 infection.

There are also nine people in the ICU with an active case of COVID-19.

While OPH reports 170 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, the total number of active cases in Ottawa continues to fall.

On Tuesday, there are 1.768 active COVID-19 cases in Ottawa.

There are four new outbreaks at health-care institutions for a total of 81 ongoing outbreaks.

Across the province, Ontario reports 2,254 patients are hospitalized with COVID-19. There are also 474 patients in intensive care.

On top of that, the province is reporting 42 more virus-related deaths.

There were 2,092 new COVID-19 cases reported, though Public Health Ontario has said the true number is likely higher due to the province's current restricted testing policy.
