NS has 0 new deaths today. 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 44 days and limited, if any new cases. Today marks the 3rd time NS has had 4 days in a row with 0 deaths. Yesterday, 293 tests were completed with 0 new cases reported. 100% of ALL cases since day 1 are now concluded. There are still 0 (-1 actually) active cases in NS as per official numbers. Northwood still shows 1 active case and there are still 3 cases showing in hospital. I was hoping the data would be reconciled today, but there is a new note on the data page that states: "Data sources are being reconciled and consolidated to ensure all publicly reported data comes from a single source, Panorama, the province’s public health reporting system. Updated data will be reported this week."

- NS has 61 deaths, making the death rate 61/1M population
- Canada's rate sitting at 208/1M
- Global rate is 52.2/1M
- US rate is 337/1M
- Austria rate is 76/1M
