NS has 1 new death reported today. Unfortunately, the individual who had been in ICU for some time passed away several weeks ago.
A 60-year-old man with underlying medical conditions died several weeks ago in the central area. His death has been under investigation since then to determine if COVID-19 was a factor. He was not a resident of a long-term care home.
That was the last active case in NS, meaning there are no longer any active cases remaining. 53/63 (84%) NS deaths are from Northwood and 57/63 (90%) are from long term care in general (11 different facilities have reported cases, none have an active case). NS is now at 16 days without a death, since the death reported today actually occurred several weeks ago. Yesterday, 355 tests were complete with 0 new cases reported. There has been just 1 new case overall in the last 14 days, none in the last 13 days. Northwood is at 25 days with no new cases. Note, the 1 person remaining in hospital is no longer considered to have an active covid infection but are still not well enough to be released.
