*Notes on data: The figures are compiled by the COVID-19 Open Data Working Group based on the latest publicly available data and are subject to change. Note that some provinces report weekly, while others report same-day or figures from the previous day. Vaccine doses administered is not equivalent to the number of people inoculated as the approved vaccines require two doses per person. The vaccines are currently not being administered to children under 18 and those with certain health conditions. In some cases the number of doses administered may appear to exceed the number of doses distributed as some provinces have been drawing extra doses per vial.

March 7 COVID-19 update: Two new cases in Nova Scotia – TheChronicleHerald.ca

Published

 on


Two new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Nova Scotia on Sunday.

Both cases are in the central health zone, with one related to travel outside Atlantic Canada. That person is self-isolating, as required.

The provincial Health Department said the other case is a close contact of a previously reported case.

“Seeing a low number of cases today is encouraging,” Premier Iain Rankin said in a news release. “I want to thank everyone for doing their part to remain vigilant.

“Let’s keep up our efforts and continue to follow the public health measures – wear a mask, wash your hands, keep physical distance, stay home if you are feeling unwell, self-isolate when required and get tested regularly.

Nova Scotia now has 29 active cases of COVID-19. There are two people in hospital, with one of those in intensive care.

On Saturday, Nova Scotia Health Authority labs completed 3,685 tests, bringing the total since Oct. 1 to 247,189 tests. There have been 570 COVID-19 cases and no deaths since that date.

“We know how easily COVID-19 can spread if we let our guard down,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “It is up to all of us to follow the public health protocols to make sure we limit the spread of the virus.”

Nova Scotians are strongly encouraged to be tested for COVID-19, particularly if they have a large number of close contacts due to their work or social activities.

TORONTO —
Ontario is reporting the highest number of new COVID-19 cases in more than three weeks.

Health officials reported 1,299 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, which is a sharp increase from the 990 cases reported on Saturday.

It’s the highest number of new infections in a single day since Feb. 13, when 1,300 new cases were logged.

Ontario also reported an increase in the number of COVID-19-related fatalities in the previous 24-hour period, with 15 deaths added.

With 46,586 tests completed in the previous 24-hour period, Ontario’s positivity rate also increased to 3.1 per cent. 

Health officials also deemed 1,105 more cases of the disease to be resolved, bringing Ontario’s number of recovered patients up to 290,840

Sunday’s case count brings the total number of lab-confirmed cases in Ontario to 308,296, including deaths and recoveries.

Toronto reported 329 new cases on Sunday, while Peel Region reported 192 new cases and York Region reported 116 new cases.

According to the province, there are at least 606 patients infected with COVID-19 in Ontario hospitals as of Sunday. Of those patients, 273 are in the intensive care unit (ICU) and 179 of those 273 patients are breathing with the assistance of a ventilator.

The increase in cases comes a day before Toronto and Peel Region are set to move into the grey zone of the province’s colour-coded framework, which means all non-essential retail stores can reopen with strict capacity limits.

Health officials confirmed Sunday that two more cases of the U.K. variant, also known as B.1.1.7, have been found in Ontario, bringing the province’s total count to 828.

There is now a total of 31 confirmed cases of the South African variant, known as B.1.351.

Five new cases of the Brazilian variant, known as P.1, were recorded Sunday, pushing the province’s total infection count at eight.

Meanwhile, 890,604 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Ontario thus far, including 30,192 administered in the previous day.

In Ontario, 271,807 total vaccinations have been completed as of Sunday.
