Cases of COVID-19 have continued to decline in the North-West Zone, despite 30 new cases being confirmed across Saskatchewan over the last 24 hours.
Active, confirmed cases of COVID-19 sit at five in the area housing Lloydminster, the Battlefords and surrounding towns. This is because there has been another recovery in the subregion housing Turtleford and St.Walburg, putting their active and confirmed cases at zero.
The Battlefords zone also sits at no active or confirmed cases as of August 14th. The Lloydminster and area region is at one active and confirmed case, while the area housing Cut Knife, Unity and Wilkie, among others, remains at four.
Across the province, 23 cases were found in the South-West zone, six more in the South-Central portion and one more in the North-Central. One more case is pending residency information before being put into a zone’s count.
All of these cases and 108 of the 174 considered active province-wide were confirmed in communal living settings.
Ten people are in hospital. Five people are receiving inpatient care; three in Saskatoon, one in Regina and one in the North Central region. Five people are in intensive care; three in Saskatoon, one in the North Central region and one in the South West.
Of the 1,541 reported cases, a total of 1,347 people have recovered.
