*BREAKING NEWS* Third COVID-19 death reported by Porcupine Health Unit

Just about two-and-a-half hours after announcing the outbreak at Timmins and District Hospital, the Porcupine Health Unit announced its third COVID-19 death, also at TADH.

In a news release, medical officer of health Dr. Lianne Catton says the death is not related to the outbreak.  She says the man in his 70s was admitted to the hospital two weeks earlier — on April 5th — having tested positive for the coronavirus.

The health unit is responsible for the area from Matheson along Highway 11 to Hearst and Hornepayne, and from Timmins northward to the James Bay coast.
