Ontario Respiratory Virus Tool

The Ontario Respiratory Virus Tool provides comprehensive epidemiological information of respiratory virus activity in Ontario, including COVID-19, influenza and other respiratory viruses. Explore respiratory virus data including weekly case trends, laboratory testing, and outbreaks. The tool also contains additional COVID-19-specific data including: outcomes (hospitalizations, deaths, and ICU and hospital bed occupancy) and COVID-19 vaccination and dose administration.

Updates as of February 23, 2024:

  • The ORVT now includes new COVID-19, influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) outcomes data including:
    • COVID-19 hospital bed occupancy data for people being treated primarily for COVID-19 (due to infection).
    • Influenza hospital bed occupancy data for all people in hospital testing positive (total), as well as people being treated primarily for COVID-19 (due to infection).
    • RSV hospital bed occupancy data for all people in hospital testing positive for RSV (total).
    • All bed occupancy (total and due to infection) data for COVID-19, influenza RSV can be filtered by public health unit. All total bed occupancy data can also be filtered by age group.

COVID-19 hospitalizations (hospital admissions) are no longer updated in the ORVT and are available up to January 20, 2024. This is due to the declining completeness of COVID-19 hospitalization data for the 2023-24 surveillance period, which PHO obtains from the provincial Case and Contact Management database (CCM). The enhancements to the COVID-19 bed occupancy indicator data will help to support surveillance and reporting on COVID-19 outcomes.
