New Brunswick reported three more deaths from COVID-19 in its weekly update Tuesday, while hospitalizations, outbreaks and new cases all remained about the same.

“COVID-19 activity remains moderate,” according to the Respiratory Watch report. “All indicators remained stable throughout the current reporting period,” Oct. 22 to Oct. 28, it says.

The three people who died were all age 65 or older, the report shows.

Only confirmed cases who die in hospital are counted as COVID deaths, after the province changed its definition in September.

The latest deaths raise the pandemic death toll to at least 956.

57 hospitalizations, 1 in ICU
Fifty-seven people were hospitalized for or with the virus during the reporting week, down from 58 in the previous report. One person required intensive care, unchanged.

Among those hospitalized are two people aged 20 to 44, nine people aged 45 to 64, and 46 aged 65 or older. The person in ICU is aged 45 to 64.
