Going forward, as long as there are no new cases I will not update all the visuals as frequently as there is little to report in NS. I will update them every few days so you can still see the international trends, and I will continue to include the written data and commentary daily.
Nova Scotia Update:
0 new deaths
1 new hospitalization (2 total)
0 new ICU cases (1 total)
0 new cases (1061 total)
307 tests done
0 new recoveries (998 total)
0 active cases (100% are officially concluded)
NS has 0 new cases again today, meaning there are no longer any active cases remaining. 53/63 (84%) NS deaths are from Northwood and 57/63 (90%) are from long term care in general (11 different facilities have reported cases, none have an active case). NS is now at 17 days without a death and 14 days without a new case. Yesterday, 307 tests were complete with 0 new cases reported. Northwood is at 26 days with no new cases. Note, there is an additional person showing in hospital today. Their case is considered resolved but being treated in hospital. I have no other information at this time.
