One COVID-19 death over weekend; data changes to total count

JAN. 31 – One death related to COVID-19 has been recorded over the weekend by Hasting Prince Edward Public Health. The number of deaths recorded has been reduced to 33, from 36 recorded Friday.

HPEPH states on the dashboard that “deaths that are unrelated to COVID-19 are not included in the death count on the HPEPH COVID-19 Dashboard. Cause of death is not always known at time of reporting. As such, the count of deaths is subject to change as cause of death data becomes available.”

There were 100 new high-risk cases and with recoveries, 343 active high-risk cases ongoing and 15 outbreaks.
