COVID Claims 59th Elderly Patient in Nova Scotia

LIVE PRESS CONFERENCE AT 3 PM ON SIX RIVERS RADIO

Another elderly patient has died of complications from COVID-19, bringing Nova Scotia’s death total to fifty-nine. 

The woman, in her eighties, had underlying medical conditions that were impacted by the coronavirus. She lived in the Central Health Zone but not in a long-term care facility.

A great deal of attention has been focussed on residents of Northwood Care where fifty-one of the province’s deaths were recorded. The Halifax facility still has eleven patients with active infections, along with four members of the home’s staff.

Premier Stephen McNeil and Dr. Robert Strang will host another press conference at 3:00 o’clock. The briefing will be broadcast live on Six Rivers Radio. Click HERE to listen.

As of today, Nova Scotia has 1,052 confirmed cases of COVID-19. Two new cases were identified yesterday from 573 tests conducted at the QEII microbiology lab.

To date, Nova Scotia has 38,999 negative test results, including 1,052 positive for COVID-19. Nine-hundred and seventy-six patients have recovered.

Seven people remain in hospital, three of those in ICU. 

Cases have been identified in all parts of the province. A map and graphic presentation of the case data is available at https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/data.
