For the ninth day in a row, the province has reported no new cases of COVID-19. The total number of active cases is six, out of the 118 that have been diagnosed in the province (112 are marked as resolved).
Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health, stressed that even though progress is being made, it’s not the time to ease restrictions yet.
“Let me be clear, we are nowhere near ready to declare victory over the COVID-19 virus,” Russell said. “We will continue to have cases during the recovery phase. Success is not merely the absence of new cases. Success is knowing how many cases we really have, how widespread the disease has become, and that we are able to manage it so that our health-care system is not overwhelmed.”
