Coronavirus Canada updates: New Brunswick has no more active cases, joins four other provinces and territories

All of New Brunswick’s 120 patients have recovered from COVID-19, meaning there are no more active cases in the province.

For the tenth straight day, New Brunswick has also not identified a new infection.

This is the second time that all of its patients have recovered. It previously had zero active cases, when on May 2 it announced all 118 of its patients had recovered. But a few days later, the province identified two more patients, for a total of 120.

Since the start of the pandemic, New Brunswick has conducted 20,032 tests for COVID-19.

Alongside New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island is the only province with no active cases. All 27 of its patients have recovered, after its last case was recorded April 28. Health officials have administered 4,556 tests in P.E.I. as of its last update.

All 16 cases in Yukon and the Northwest Territories have also been marked as resolved, while Nunavut has yet to confirm a positive diagnosis. Yukon and the Northwest Territories have outlined their plans to lift restrictions, while Nunavut is expected to release a plan next week.

The last case to be identified in Canada’s three territories was on April 20.

Positive trends in other provinces

On Saturday, Manitoba announced that it had not discovered any new cases for the fourth straight day.
