Algoma Public Health is reporting two new COVID-related deaths in its latest update, bringing the total to 33 since the beginning of the pandemic.
APH is also reporting an increase of one new hospitalization with COVID-19, and 29 new active cases, though that number may be an underestimation due to limits on who can be tested.
There are currently 16 people in hospital with COVID-19 in the region, up from 15 yesterday, and 598 active cases (plus two in non-Algoma residents in the region), which is down from 610 in Sunday's report.
APH reports that there have been 57 resolved cases since the last report and 236 people have been tested since the last update.
Note: As of Dec. 31, 2021, the province has limited COVID-19 PCR testing to the highest risk populations. Furthermore, some people with mild or asymptomatic infection may not seek testing. Algoma Public Health states that the numbers of confirmed cases are an underestimate of the actual number of people with COVID-19 in the Algoma region.
