COVID-19 Strikes Again in Nova Scotia
International travel is once again the culprit in driving up the number of COVID infections in Nova Scotia.
Two new cases were identified yesterday from the 334 tests completed at the QEII microbiology lab. Both patients are in the Central Health Zone.
The pair had travelled outside Canada and one was associated with two others who tested positive a week ago following an international flight.
Despite the two new cases, Nova Scotia’s public health measures seem to be keeping a lid on the virus as there has been no community spread for weeks.
To date, Nova Scotia has 64,184 negative test results, 1,071 positive COVID-19 cases and 64 deaths.
There are currently no people in hospital as a result of COVID-19.
Cases have ranged in age from under 10 to over 90.
One thousand and three cases have been resolved.
Cases have been identified in all parts of the province.
