COVID-19 has killed three more New Brunswickers, raising the province’s pandemic death toll to 877, figures released Tuesday show.

Hospital admissions because of the virus decreased in the past week, while the number of confirmed cases and positivity rate remained “stable,” the COVIDWatch report says.

None of the deaths occurred during the reporting week, April 9 to April 15.

One person died in March and the other two in January, a graphic in the report indicates. There is an average two-month lag from date of death to the registration of death, it says.
