Jan 17, 2023

New Brunswick reported 13 more deaths from COVID-19 Tuesday, but says hospitalizations and new cases have decreased in the past week.

None of the deaths occurred during the reporting week in question, Jan. 8 to Jan. 14, the COVIDWatch report shows.

Six occurred in December, two in November, two in October, one in September and two some time prior to Aug. 28, which is as far back as data in the report goes, the start of the respiratory virus season.

“Deaths are subject to a lag in reporting,” the report says. There is an average two-month lag from date of death to registration of death, it says.

The deaths include a person aged 50 to 69 and 10 people aged 70 or older, a comparison of the latest COVIDWatch report with last week’s report shows. No ages for the two people who died prior to Aug. 28 are provided.
