3 new cases (1011 total)
598 tests done

221 active cases (-19, 22% of cases are active, 78% are concluded)

NS has 1 new deaths today, unfortunately it is again from Northwood. 41/47 (87%) NS deaths are from Northwood and 45/47 (96%) are from long term care in general (11 different facilities are now reporting 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, 598 tests were completed with just 3 new cases reported. 78% (+2%) of ALL cases since day 1 are now concluded. I can tell you that there are just 32 active cases outside LTC now, but the bar graph will not be ready until I get official case and recovery numbers from Northwood this afternoon.

  • NS has 47 deaths, making the death rate 47/1M population
  • Canada's rate sitting at 122/1M

  • Austria increased slightly but still well under 1%.
  • The rate of increase in Canada fell to well under 4%.
