Nova Scotia Update:
1 new death
0 new hospitalizations (3 total)
0 new ICU cases (1 total)
0 new cases (1058 total)
893 tests done
2 new recoveries (995 total)
2 active cases (-3, 0.19% of cases are active, 99.81% are concluded)

NS has 1 new death today. It was a man in his 70's from the central region with underlying health conditions. He was not part of a LTC facility. Interestingly, there is no change in the overall hospitalizations or ICU cases. One would assume an elderly person with COVID-19 who was in critical condition would have been in ICU so I am unsure how to react to that. Also, this person confirms there has in fact been a case outside LTC, even though the stats continue to indicate no cases outside LTC. 53/61 (87%) NS deaths are from Northwood and 57/61 (93%) 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 2 deaths in the last 40 days and limited, if any new cases. Yesterday, 893 tests were completed with 0 new cases reported. 99.81% of ALL cases since day 1 are now concluded. As of today, there are just 2 active cases in TOTAL, NONE of which are outside LTC. Northwood still shows 4 active cases so it's just a further indication that their data is behind and it makes the anomalies glaring where the overall numbers are so low right now.

- NS has 60 deaths, making the death rate 60/1M population
- Canada's rate sitting at 200/1M
- Global rate is 49.8/1M
- US rate is 327/1M
- Austria rate is 76/1M
- Spain is 578/1M
- Sweden is 444/1M

Notable points for today:
- Spain reported just 1 death, this is absolutely amazing!
- Austria reports 1 death meaning 31/32 days under a 1% increase including 24/26 under 0.5%.
- The rate of increase in Canada ticked up slightly but still under 1.5%. This marks 20 days in a row at 2.1% or less but broke the small streak of days under 1%.
- The US rate of increase maintained and is still under 1%. They are at 27 days in a row under 2.12%, 20 in a row under 2%, 10 of them under 1% including the last 5 in a row.
- Sweden jumped up again to over 1.5%. 21 of the last 26 days are under 2% including 16 of the last 19 and last 7 in a row.
