Written by on in tags: COVID-19, Daily Update

Nova Scotia Update:
3 new deaths
0 new hospitalizations (9 total)
0 new ICU cases (4 total)
4 new cases (1024 total)
502 tests done
6 more  recoveries (870 total)
103 active cases (-5, 10% of cases are active, 90% are concluded)

NS has 3 new deaths today, all from Northwood. 45/51 (88%) NS deaths are from Northwood and 49/51 (96%) are from long term care in general (11 different facilities are now reporting cases, 3 with active cases). Outside of LTC, the story is the same - NS continues to perform very well day after day with no deaths and limited, if any new cases. Yesterday, 502 tests were completed with just 4 new cases reported. 90% (+1%) of ALL cases since day 1 are now concluded.

There was a significant increase in Northwood recoveries today, which should reconcile yesterday`s data. I am going to work on the bar graph and likely back up the LTC data by a day to try and have it line up better with the provincial data, as it seems clear that`s what the issue is. Once Northwood updates their data today, I will send out the re-vamped bar graph.

- NS has 51 deaths, making the death rate 51/1M population
- Canada's rate sitting at 138/1M
- Global rate is 37.7/1M
- US rate is 251/1M
- Austria rate is 71/1M
- Spain is 569/1M
- Sweden is 324/1M

Notable points for today:
- Spain's rate of increase maintained itself at well under 1%, for the 11th straight day.
- Austria with just 3 deaths, has maintained an increase under 0.5% for 4 days in a row and under 1% for 10 straight days.
- The rate of increase in Canada is back to 3.5%, though we are at 5 days in a row under 4%.
- The US rate of increase ticked up slightly to just over 2%, but are at 5 days in a row under 3%.
- Sweden ticked up slightly but still well under 2% for the 4th straight day.
