Nova Scotia reports 15 more deaths from COVID-19 – CBC

Newly reported deaths occurred earlier in the pandemic, according to Nova Scotia Health

Nov 10, 2022

Nova Scotia reported 15 new COVID-19 deaths Thursday, but the province says the deaths did not happen within the latest reporting week, which ran from Nov. 1 to Nov. 7.

The 15 deaths were listed in a new category on Nova Scotia’s COVID-19 dashboard titled “New Deaths from Previous Reporting Period.”

The new category was launched on the dashboard on Nov. 3. A spokesperson for the province said deaths reported in this category could be from any time in the past.

“Confirming cause of death for people takes time as there are a number of different circumstances to analyze. Therefore, deaths are subject to a lag in reporting. This has been the case throughout the pandemic,” Khalehla Perrault told CBC News in an email.

The province noted no new COVID-19 deaths for the current reporting period. This marks the second consecutive week of no reported deaths. Since March 2020, the province has reported 617 deaths.
