Jan 04, 2023

COVID-19 has killed 18 more New Brunswickers, sent 54 people to hospital over the past two weeks and infected more than 1,000, the latest figures from the province show.

Among those who died, one person was aged 50 to 69 and 14 were aged 70 or older, according to the COVIDWatch report, which covers Dec. 18 to Dec. 31 and was released on Wednesday, instead of Tuesday, because of the holidays.

No information about the other three people is available. They died prior to Aug. 28, which is as far back as data in the newly formatted reports goes — the start of the current respiratory virus season.

Of the other 15 deaths, only one actually occurred during the two-week reporting period in question, a chart on page six reveals.

The others occurred between Sept. 17 and Dec. 16. These are deaths confirmed and reported to Public Health since its previous report.
