Public Health Sudbury and Districts (PHSD) reported Friday there was an increase of 30 new COVID-19 cases in Greater Sudbury as of Friday June 24, but at the same time, PHSD said there is "a three-day lag in the data" it is reporting.
Of the 30 new cases reported Friday, 27 were believed to have originated in Greater Sudbury, one new case was in the Sudbury District and two new cases were in the Manitoulin District.
PHSD also reports that the total accumulated number of COVID cases has reached 16,138 since March of 2020. The health unit also reports that 16,058 cases have been resolved in that same time period. It means there are currently only 80 active cases.
No deaths were reported Friday, although a COVID-related death was reported on Wednesday. The total cumulative death count since March 2020 stands at 152.
PHSD also reported that as of 4 p.m. Friday, the accumulated number of local residents that are fully vaccinated is now at 82 per cent. The health unit also publishes a new metric called The Risk Index, which measures several factors. In Greater Sudbury, the risk index is low.
Also, Health Sciences North reports there are only 25 COVID cases at the hospital, with four of those in the intensive care unit. Only three patients were under investigation (being tested) as of Friday.
Also, in Sudbury there are only two active COVID-19 outbreaks in effect. One outbreak is at the Finlandia Village-Manty Area as of June 23. The second outbreak is at the Canadian Mental Health Association, Moonlight Avenue Home. That outbreak has been in effect since June 17.
