N.S. reports 10 COVID-19 deaths, positive PCR tests up 32% to average of 278 per day – CBC

Positive PCR tests tick up this week, but hospitalizations and deaths are down

Jun 16, 2022

Nova Scotia is reporting 10 COVID-19 deaths, 28 hospitalizations and a daily average of 278 lab-confirmed cases in its weekly figures.

The figures are from a seven-day period that ended June 13. The province said hospitalizations and deaths are down this week but the number of positive PCR tests is up 32 per cent from last week.

Starting this week, the number of lab-confirmed cases includes people who have COVID-19 for the second time or more. It said reinfections were not previously included in data reports because the number was small.

“Since the beginning of the Omicron wave, there have been 215 people who have tested positive 90 days or more after a previous positive PCR test result,” Nova Scotia’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Shelley Deeks said in a news release.
