According to the website, 980 men and 974 women have been diagnosed with COVID-19. The province says that 1,496 people diagnosed have been between the ages of 20 and 64, meaning people in that age range comprise 76 per cent of patients. 

The province says 51,629 people have been tested for the virus and that 4,280 possible cases are under investigation. 

According to Peel Public Health's COVID-19 website (which was updated at 10:00 am on March 30), 277 people have been diagnosed in the region. There are currently 101 cases in Brampton, 16 in Caledon and 154 in Mississauga. Six cases are currently pending more information.
