Public Health announced two more confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Brunswick on Saturday.

1 case of a person in their 50s, in District 2 (St. John’s District). The other is someone in his 40s in Zone 4 (Edmundston County).

15 recoveries were reported in Saturday’s update, bringing the total number of active cases to 98.

However, there is now one person listed in intensive care due to the virus.

There were a total of 530 COVID-19 cases in the province during the pandemic, with 425 recovered.

On Friday, 863 tests were conducted, bringing the total number of tests to 132,519.

There were seven deaths.

It’s still orange

Three health districts in New Brunswick enter another weekend in their orange recovery phase as the number of cases rises in the north of the county.

District 1 (Moncton) District 2 (Saint John) and District 3 (Fredericton) remain at the second most restrictive levels as of Saturday morning.

Of the 98 active cases in the county, 88 are in the Orange regions and most of them are in the St. John’s District.

Nonetheless, public health appears to be exploring the idea of ​​returning the Fredericton and Moncton regions to the less restricted yellowish phase.

Dr Jennifer Russell, the district’s chief medical officer for health, said officials are conducting risk assessments, but she is unsure whether a decision will be made by Sunday.

The North is in danger

But the numbers of cases are increasing in the Edmundston, or Zone 4.

On Saturday, the governorate announced another injury in the region, bringing the total number to six.

Additionally, Lublau confirmed that an employee of the Edmundston Atlantic Superstore has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

The company said that any colleagues who worked closely with the infected individual would self-isolate.

This comes at a time when UNB researchers say that people who live in the northern regions of the province are more vulnerable to negative outcomes about COVID-19 due to demographics.
