The number of new COVID-19 cases being reported in Ottawa is making up 20 per cent of all new cases in Ontario, Wednesday.

Minister of Health Christine Elliott says there are 165 new cases in the province and 33 of those positive tests came from Canada's capital. Other hot spots for the virus include the Peel region with 25 and Windsor-Essex with 39.

Yesterday, a spike of 43 new cases was reported in Ottawa, making up almost a quarter of the province's new case total.

Elsewhere, Elliott explains that 28 of 34 public health units are reporting five or fewer new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday -- 18 of them are reporting no new cases at all. 

This news comes after the province processed nearly 24,000 COVID-19 tests.
