Nova Scotia Thirteen Days COVID Free
Thirteen may be considered an unlucky number by some, but that is how many days Nova Scotia has gone without a new COVID case.
Testing continues apace across the province, with 858 tests yesterday alone, all negative. The province is currently free of any active cases of coronavirus infection.
This news, mirrored by the other Atlantic provinces, remains a bright spot on the Canadian scene as Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, and BC continue to struggle with spiking numbers leading to fears of a major resurgence of the coronavirus.
Officials elsewhere in Canada are pleading with residents to take the public health safeguards seriously or face the imposition of expensive fines or a return to another round of public and business closures.
Nova Scotia had 87,428 negative test results, 1,086 positive COVID-19 cases, and 65 deaths.
The public health state of emergency was declared under the Emergency Management Act on March 22nd and has been renewed every two weeks since, now in effect till October 4th.
Despite superstition, we must pass thirteen days to get to fourteen and beyond.
