Health unit says there are now only 91 active cases being monitored

Public Health Sudbury and Districts(PHSD) has reported four new confirmed cases of COVID-19 and one new death related to the outbreak at Finlandia Village in Sudbury. This means there have been eight deaths in the Sudbury jurisdiction since the pandemic was declared in March 2020.

PHSD also reported there are now 91 active cases now being monitored. This is a drop of the 99 active cases reported on Friday. Since the pandemic was declared in March 2020, there have been 513 total COVID-19 cases reported to the Sudbury health unit, with 422 of those cases being resolved.

The PHSD daily update page also reported that four new cases were deemed to have occurred within the Greater Sudbury Area.

In terms of possible causes of the new cases, PHSD reported 11 new cases related to an outbreak, seven new cases that were the result of contact with a confirmed case and 14 other cases with information pending or missing. These numbers do not correspond with the current case count numbers because the health unit does not indicate when the causes are determined or how long it takes to post the cause numbers on its website. 

With respect to age groups, PHSD reported there were four cases where the age was not specified.

On the provincial COVID-19 report today, the Ontario government daily website reported there were 2063 new confirmed COVID-19 cases across the province.  Also today, the province reported 73 new deaths had occurred in the previous 24 hours.
