First Nations communities seeing sharp increase in Omicron cases, officials say – The Globe and Mail

There has been a sharp increase in Omicron cases in First Nations communities across the country, Indigenous Services Canada says.

ISC Chief Medical Officer Tom Wong said in a press conference Thursday that active cases have risen to 5,160, a 52-per-cent increase from last week.

But he said that number is likely low, since, as in non-Indigenous jurisdictions, testing has been limited.

There have been a total of 60,703 reported cases among First Nations during the pandemic, 2,514 hospital admissions and 575 deaths, according to Indigenous Services.
