Coronavirus Canada Updates: New Brunswick Reports 13 New COVID-19 Cases

Ottawa Public Health is reporting 25 more people in Ottawa have tested positive for COVID-19.

OPH’s COVID-19 dashboard now reports 14,429 total laboratory-confirmed cases since the pandemic began.

No new COVID-19 deaths were reported on Tuesday. To date, 437 residents of Ottawa have died throughout the pandemic.

The provincial government 975 new cases of COVID-19 reported across Ontario, ending a streak of more than 1,000 new cases per day in the province. Ontario also reported 12 new deaths and 1,002 newly resolved cases on Tuesday. The province added 18 new cases in Ottawa. Daily case counts from OPH often differ from those from the province because of different data collection times.

Daily case counts are often lower on Tuesdays compared to the rest of the week.

No new cases of any variants of concern were reported in Ottawa on Tuesday. To date, the province says Ottawa has seen a total of eight cases of the B.1.1.7 variant (UK) and one case of the B.1.351 variant (South Africa).

The lower case count caused a slight dip in the weekly trend of new cases per 100,000 residents, though the figure has been rising in the past several days and is approaching the “Red-Control” level under the province’s COVID-19 framework. Ottawa’s testing positivity rate and estimated reproduction number are also closer to the red zone than the yellow zone.
