Since Newfoundland and Labrador’s last COVID-19 update, there have been 12 new deaths due to COVID-19.

The provincial Health Department, in its biweekly COVID-19 update, announced seven new deaths for the two-week reporting period of Feb. 26-March 11, but data in the regional and age breakdowns province’s COVID-19 website reveals 12 new deaths.

Since the provincial government moved to biweekly pandemic updates, the number of announced new deaths has been consistently underreported. The Health Department says the discrepancy is due to deaths that were reported since the last update but which happened before the two-week reporting period.

Four of the new deaths were in the Eastern Health area, seven were in Central Health area and one was in Labrador-Grenfell Health.
