The Nova Scotia government reported three new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday.

With 11 more cases considered resolved, the number of active cases has dropped from 27 to 19.

Nova Scotia’s three latest cases are all located in the Central Zone. One is related to travel outside Atlantic Canada while the other two are under investigation.

Nova Scotia Health Authority’s labs completed 1,045 Nova Scotia tests on Monday.

VACCINE DOSES

Starting Tuesday, Nova Scotia will report the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered weekly.

The province says 2,720 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were administered between Dec. 16 and Jan. 2.

CASE BREAKDOWN

Since Oct. 1, Nova Scotia has completed 119,593 COVID-19 tests and confirmed 419 positive COVID-19 cases. Of those, 400 cases are now considered resolved, leaving 19 active cases.

No one has died during the second wave.

There is no longer anyone in hospital as a result of COVID-19.

Since the start of the pandemic, Nova Scotia has completed 242,771 tests, and reported a total of 1,508 cases of COVID-19. Of those, 1,424 cases are now considered resolved and 65 people have died as a result of the novel coronavirus.

The province’s confirmed cases range in age from under 10 to over 90.

Fifty-five per cent of cases are female and 45 per cent are male.

There are cases confirmed across the province, but most have been identified in the Central Zone, which contains the Halifax Regional Municipality.

The provincial government says cumulative cases by zone may change as data is updated in Panorama, the province’s electronic information system.

The numbers reflect where a person lives and not where their sample was collected.

Western Zone: 85 cases
Central Zone: 1,244 cases
Northern Zone: 111 cases
Eastern Zone: 68 cases

The provincial state of emergency, which was first declared on March 22, has been extended to Jan. 10.
