10 Jun Update on COVID-19: Updated Data and No New Cases
Posted at 15:05h in Provincial Updates
Today’s update will be live-streamed at 3pm.
As of today, June 10, Nova Scotia has 1,061 confirmed cases of COVID-19. No new cases were identified June 9.
The province has reconciled and consolidated data sources to ensure all publicly reported data comes from a single source, Panorama, the province’s public health reporting system. Updated data is available at https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/data .
“Nova Scotia is the first province in the country to integrate our lab data with our public health reporting system,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “Panorama is the gold standard and gives us the most up-to-date and comprehensive COVID-19 data.”
This change altered some data points. The total number of cases increased by one additional case, to reflect a Nova Scotian who tested positive for COVID-19, but who is not currently in the province and was not tested here. The ‘recovered’ category has been renamed ‘resolved’ to more accurately account for all COVID-19 cases whose investigations are considered completed and closed by public health. The breakdown of total number of cases by location is now based on the Nova Scotia Health Authority zone of the individual’s residence, not where their sample was collected for testing.
The QEII Health Sciences Centre’s microbiology lab completed 691 Nova Scotia tests on June 9 and is operating 24-hours.
There are no licensed long-term care homes in Nova Scotia with active cases of COVID-19.
To date, Nova Scotia has 46,668 negative test results, 1,061 positive COVID-19 cases, 62 deaths, and five active COVID-19 cases. Cases range in age from under 10 to over 90. Two individuals are currently in hospital, both in ICU. Nine-hundred and ninety-four cases are now resolved. Cases have been identified in all parts of the province.
