Integrity of Data Reported on the COVID-19 Dashboard

Overall, we found that while OPH has processes to ensure data on the number of positive cases and deaths is not over-reported on its dashboard, laboratories did not always submit all COVID-19 test results to OPH, and the results they did provide were not always submitted in a timely manner.
