NS has 1 new death today. It was a woman in her 70s with underlying medical conditions in the central regions. She was not a resident of a LTC facility. 53/62 (85%) NS deaths are from Northwood and 57/62 (92%) are from long term care in general (11 different facilities have reported cases, just Northwood with an active case). Outside of LTC, the story is the same - NS continues to perform very well day after day with just 3 deaths in the last 45 days and limited, if any new cases. Yesterday, 578 tests were completed with 1 new case reported. *100% of ALL cases since day 1 are now concluded.
*As per today's press conference, the death today was actually from a couple weeks ago but they had to investigate to determine if it was in fact COVID-19 related, which as of today it was confirmed to be, apparently.
*There are still 0 (-1 actually) active cases in NS as per official numbers. Northwood still shows 1 active case and the government data on hospitals and recoveries has not updated in 2 days now as they reconcile the data and plan to release updated figures sometime this week. Hopefully we have a clear picture of how many active cases there truly are before long.
- NS has 62 deaths, making the death rate 62/1M population
- Canada's rate sitting at 208/1M
- Global rate is 52.5/1M
- US rate is 338/1M
- Austria rate is 76/1M
- Spain is 578/1M
- Sweden is 459/1M
Notable points for today:
- Spain reported 0 deaths. It would appear the pandemic has been effectively contained in Spain
- Austria reports 0 deaths again meaning 29/31 days under 0.5% increase as well as the last 11 days in a row. It appears Austria has also effectively contained the virus.
- The rate of increase in Canada maintained itself under 0.5% with only 35 total deaths. This marks 25 days in a row at 2.1% or less including 4 in a row under 1%.
- The US rate of increase dropped again, to under 0.5%. This is their lowest daily death toll since March 30 and lowest rate of increase since this all began. They are at 25 days in a row under a 2% increase, 15 of them under 1% including the last 10 in a row. The US was told they would have huge spikes and many days over 3000 deaths once they began working. Fortunately, the exact opposite has been the case.
- Sweden's rate of increase ticked up slightly but still well under 1%. 26 of the last 31 days are under 2% including 21 of the last 24 and last 12 in a row, the last 3 under 1%.
