Saskatchewan has broken record after record almost daily throughout November for COVID-19 hospitalizations, including on Saturday.
There are 93 people in the hospital, 21 of whom are in the ICU.
The Opposition and health-care workers have sounded the alarm on the health-care system becoming too stretched and have asked for a circuit-break lockdown, but the government has neglected to take such action.
On Thursday, the province’s most recent measures came into effect, including a province-wide mask mandate and a limit of indoor private gatherings to five people.
