A 48-year-old woman is the most recent person to die with COVID-19 in Hamilton.

Hamilton public health confirmed the new death Monday. The woman lived in the community — as opposed to in a care home — and died in hospital Saturday, July 25.

She is the youngest person to die with the virus in the city. Previously, the youngest person to die was 60 years old.

The new death comes after more than a month-long stretch with no local COVID fatalities. Fewer than five people remain in hospital with the virus.

The new death brings Hamilton’s COVID death toll to 45. Just 11 of those deaths involved people who live in the community. Most others stemmed from outbreaks at retirement homes or long-term care homes.

It was Ontario’s only death reported Monday, the Ministry of Health confirmed. The province’s total COVID deaths is now 2,764.

The city’s last COVID-related death occurred June 23 when Joan Wallace, 87, passed away in hospital. Wallace was a resident of the Rosslyn Retirement Residence, the site of Hamilton’s deadliest COVID-19 outbreak. Of the home’s 66 residents, 16 died with COVID. The Retirement Homes Regulatory Authority stripped the home’s licence in June. The Rosslyn is appealing.

Hamilton counts deaths as COVID-related when the person dies with the virus. COVID is not necessarily the cause of their death.

Also Monday, the city’s one remaining COVID-19 outbreak was declared over. One staff member at Hamilton Community Living Mountain residence had tested positive for the virus. The outbreak was declared July 14 and declared over July 27.

The city reported six new COVID cases Monday — which includes all new cases reported between Friday at 9 a.m. and Monday at 9 a.m. The city now has 887 confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 compared to 881 on Friday.

A total of 825 cases are considered resolved. There are 17 active cases in the city.

In the last 10 days, six of the 11 new cases involve people in their 20s.

Ontario’s health minister has raised concerns about what she called “COVID fatigue” as Ontario sees a surge of new cases involving people under 40.
