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

Nova Scotia Update:
1 new death
0 new hospitalizations (7 total)
0 new ICU cases (2 total)
1 new case (1056 total)
694 tests done
0 new recoveries (978 total)
18 active cases (no change, 1.7% of cases are active, 98.3% are concluded)

NS has 1 new death today, it occurred at Northwood. 53/60 (88%) NS deaths are from Northwood and 57/60 (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 35 days and limited, if any new cases. Yesterday, 694 tests were completed with just 1 new case reported. 98.3% of ALL cases since day 1 are now concluded. As of today, there are just 18 active cases in TOTAL, just 4 of which are outside LTC. Today's death from Northwood and coinciding reduction of 1 in the ICU numbers would seem to clarify that there are in fact Northwood residents in hospital.

- NS has 60 deaths, making the death rate 60/1M population
- Canada's rate sitting at 186/1M
- Global rate is 47.1/1M
- US rate is 313/1M
- Austria rate is 75/1M
- *Spain is 578/1M
- Sweden is 425/1M

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 reports 0 deaths. 26/27 days under 1% including 19/21 under 0.5%.
- The rate of increase in Canada dropped back slightly to just under 1.5%. This marks 15 days in a row at 2.1% or less.
- The US rate of increase maintained itself yesterday, to just over 1%. They are still at 22 days in a row under 2.12%.
- Sweden's yo-yo journey continues with an increase close to 2%, meaning 16 of the last 21 days are under 2% including 11 of the last 14.
