The number of COVID-19 deaths, hospitalizations and new confirmed cases remained relatively stable in New Brunswick over the past week, about one month after school resumed without any COVID restrictions, figures released Tuesday show.

But the province’s acting chief medical officer of health cautions against reading too much into that.

While it’s “good” the numbers haven’t increased, a fall surge is still anticipated in the coming weeks or months, said Dr. Yves Léger.

“It’s important for New Brunswickers to continue to pay attention every week to COVID updated numbers and report so that they’re aware of what’s happening in their communities around COVID,” he said.

“Even though the numbers have been trending in a positive direction for the last couple of weeks, we’re still seeing people who have COVID, we’re still seeing people who are hospitalized and we’re still seeing deaths occurring every week, so we still need to understand that COVID is still in our communities and we still need to take that seriously,” he added.
