COVID-19 cases dropping on P.E.I., weekly update shows – CBC

3 additional deaths attributed to COVID-19 after August data examined

Sep 20, 2022

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases on P.E.I. fell in the week leading up to Sept. 20, but the number of people in hospital with the virus rose slightly, according to data provided by the Department of Health and Wellness.

There were 360 new confirmed cases over the past seven days, down from 456 new cases the week before. The provincial numbers are not thought to reflect the actual number of cases, since some sufferers test positive on rapid tests and don’t pursue confirmation through a PCR test.

As of Tuesday, a total of 19 people were in hospital with COVID-19, including 15 who were admitted for other reasons and tested positive after admission. One person was in intensive care being treated for COVID-10.

The previous week, leading up to the Sept. 13 update, there were 14 people in hospital with COVID-19.
