It’s now seven days since that 70th confirm case of COVID-19 was announced in the Porcupine Health Unit territory. That case is still active. A total of 11 thousand 6 hundred and fifty nine tests have been carried out since the pandemic began. The number of tests has increased sharply up since the province required anyone who goes inside a long term care home to visit a loved one to get a coronavirus test every two weeks.

Here are the latest numbers from the PHU:

  • Total Tests Completed: 11,659
  • Number of Cases: 70
  • Resolved: 69
  • Recovered: 61
  • Deaths: 8
