Weekly COVID-19 deaths more than double in New Brunswick to 9 – CBC

Hospital admissions stable, new cases down, COVIDWatch report shows

Oct 25, 2022

The number of weekly deaths from COVID-19 in New Brunswick has more than doubled in the past week, figures released Tuesday show.

Nine New Brunswickers died from the virus between Oct. 16 and Oct. 22, up from four the previous week, according to Public Health’s COVIDWatch report.

This bucks the national and international trend, the report indicates. COVID deaths in Canada have decreased “over the last few weeks,” and global COVID deaths also “continue to decrease since the previous week.”

The number of people newly admitted to the hospital because of COVID-19 has remained stable at 29, the province says, while the number of people currently hospitalized has decreased by two to 33, including one in intensive care, down by one.

Meanwhile, the two regional health authorities say there are 136 people with COVID-19 hospitalized, as of Saturday, down from 139, including eight patients who require intensive care, down from 11.
