Health officials in Nova Scotia have identified one new case of COVID-19, involving an individual in the province’s northern zone.
It’s the only active case in the province, and no other information on the patient has been made available at this time.
All of Nova Scotia’s other remaining patients had recovered by Aug. 10. The latest case is also the first one to be announced by health officials since Aug. 2.
There are now no provinces in Canada with zero active cases. All three territories are COVID-19 free, after Yukon’s remaining two patients recovered by Thursday.
Throughout the pandemic, Nova Scotia has had 1,072 patients. That includes 64 people who have died after contracting the respiratory virus, and 1,007 resolved cases. Currently, there is no one in hospital.
