Three people died in New Brunswick from COVID-19 during the last week of September, according to the province’s latest respiratory watch report.

There were 35 hospitalizations, including five people admitted to an intensive care unit, in the week of Sept. 24 to Sept. 30. The majority of those hospitalized were 65 or older.

The number of deaths that week is up from the previous week, as is the number of ICU admissions.

The definition of a COVID death was changed in early December and is now defined as a person with a confirmed case “who was admitted to hospital and whose death occurred during their stay.”

There were also nine lab-confirmed outbreaks in the reporting period. This number includes nursing homes and “other facilities,” which could include adult residential homes and correctional centres.
