Nova Scotia Update:
0 new deaths
0 new hospitalizations (9 total)
0 new ICU cases (4 total)
2 new cases (1026 total)
554 tests done
39 more  recoveries (909 total)
66 active cases (-39, 6% of cases are active, 94% are concluded)

NS has 0 new deaths today. 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, 554 tests were completed with just 2 new cases reported. 94% (+4%) of ALL cases since day 1 are now concluded. As of today, there are just 66 active cases in TOTAL, including LTC.

Based on today's report, it would appear the data has been reconciled with Northwood and is no longer a day behind. This has to be the case as yesterday just 6 recoveries were reported but today, Northwood active cases declined by 35, and today 39 recoveries were reported so this now HAS to be from the same time frame. I will wait for Northwood to update their data today and if all looks good, I will do a best estimate for yesterday's data to then bring it up to date for today. As it stands, there looks to be just 22 cases active outside LTC as of today.

- NS has 51 deaths, making the death rate 51/1M population
- Canada's rate sitting at 141/1M
- Global rate is 38.4/1M
- US rate is 256/1M
- Austria rate is 71/1M

- Austria with just 1 death, has maintained an increase under 0.5% for 5 days in a row and under 1% for 11 straight days.
