Nova Scotia Update:
0 new deaths
0 new hospitalizations (7 total)
0 new ICU cases (3 total)
1 new case (1053 total)
533 tests done
0 new recoveries (975 total)
19 active cases ((+1, 1.8% of cases are active, 98.2% are concluded)

NS has 0 new deaths today. 52/59 (88%) NS deaths are from Northwood and 56/59 (95%) 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 1 death in the last 32 days and limited, if any new cases. Yesterday, 533 tests were completed with just 1 new case reported. 98.2% of ALL cases since day 1 are now concluded. As of today, there are just 19 active cases in TOTAL, just 3 of which are outside LTC. Note, yesterday 976 recoveries were reported but today it's 975. I have asked the government for clarification on why there is 1 less recovery reported today.

- NS has 59 deaths, making the death rate 59/1M population
- Canada's rate sitting at 177/1M
- Global rate is 45.3/1M
- US rate is 301/1M
- Austria rate is 74/1M
- *Spain is 578/1M
- Sweden is 403/1M

Notable points for today:
- Spain's new data strategy may mean their data takes a few days to iron out as it bounces around until they get it right. For now, I'll just continue to report on their totals as the daily data won't have much meaning at the moment.
- Austria had 2 deaths. They are at 24 days under 1% including 17/18 under 0.5%.
- The rate of increase in Canada dropped to under 1.5%. This marks 12 days in a row at 2.1% or less.
- The US rate of increase still well under 1%, and are at 19 days in a row under 2.12%. The last 3 days in a row are all their lowest daily death tolls since March 30 and lowest rates of increase since this began.
- Sweden had a spike yesterday, seeing their increase get up over 2%, meaning 14 of the last 18 days are under 2% including 9 of the last 11.
