Three more people with COVID-19 have died on Prince Edward Island, according to data released Tuesday by the Department of Health and Wellness.

That brings the number of deaths deemed to have been related to COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic to 103 since March 2020.

The province reports deaths when they’re reported to the Chief Public Health Office, by staff at long-term and community care facilities as well as by P.E.I. Vital Statistics.
