Nova Scotia Update:
0 new deaths
0 new hospitalizations, 1 released (5 total)
0 new ICU cases (2 total)
0 new cases (1057 total)
532 tests done
8 new recoveries (992 total)
5 active cases (-8, 0.47% of cases are active, 99.53% are concluded)

NS has 0 new deaths today. 53/60 (88%) NS deaths are from Northwood and 57/60 (95%) are from long term care in general (11 different facilities have reported cases, just Northwood with active cases). Outside of LTC, the story is the same - NS continues to perform very well day after day with just 1 death in the last 38 days and limited, if any new cases. Yesterday, 532 tests were completed with 0 new cases reported. 99.53% of ALL cases since day 1 are now concluded. As of today, there are just 5 active cases in TOTAL, NONE of which are outside LTC. The fact Northwood active cases reduced by 9, suggest that data is now up to date. I am unclear how there can be 0 active cases outside LTC where there have been at least 6 new cases outside LTC in the last 10 days. In fact, I don't really understand how there can only be 5 total active cases when there have been 10 new cases in the last 10 days. I will attempt to get clarification and will share if I hear anything.

- NS has 60 deaths, making the death rate 60/1M population
- Canada's rate sitting at 195/1M
- Global rate is 48.5/1M
- US rate is 320/1M
- Austria rate is 75/1M
- *Spain is 578/1M
- Sweden is 430/1M

Notable points for today:
- Spain reported 0 deaths yesterday for the first time since March 3, this is absolutely amazing!
- Austria reports 0 deaths for the 4th day in a row. 29/30 days under 1% increase including 22/24 under 0.5%.
- The rate of increase in Canada dropped back again to well under 0.5%. This marks 18 days in a row at 2.1% or less. Yesterday there were just 31 deaths in Canada which is the lowest single day total since April 3 and lowest rate of increase since this all began.
- The US rate of increase is just 0.75%. They are at 25 days in a row under 2.12%, 18 in a row under 2%, 8 of them under 1%.
- Sweden reported just 8 deaths meaning 19 of the last 24 days are under 2% including 14 of the last 17 and last 5 in a row.
