N.B. COVID-19 roundup: 109 new cases, 63 people in hospital

  N.B. COVID-19 roundup: 109 new cases, 63 people in hospital New Brunswick has 109 new cases of COVID-19 and 63 people in hospital with the virus, 27 of them in intensive care. The fourth wave is "hitting our province very hard," Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Jennifer Russell said Tuesday, after the province surpassed 1,000 active cases for the first time Monday, and now stands at 1,092. A surge in new infections like this hasn't happened before and will likely continue for "some time," she said, noting it will take roughly a week for the two-week circuit breaker, which began Friday night in the "hot zones," to take effect.

New Brunswick recorded two more COVID-related deaths and 130 new cases Friday, and the Horizon Health Network announced it will move all of its hospitals and health-care centres to the "red alert" COVID - 19 level next Wednesday. A person in their 80s in the Moncton region, Zone 1, and a person 90 or older in the Campbellton region, Zone 5, have died, putting the province's death toll at 72. Fifty-eight people hospitalized because of the virus, up from 55 on Thursday, with 30 of them in intensive care, a decrease of one.

New Brunswick recorded two more COVID-related deaths Thursday and 133 new cases of COVID - 19 , the provincial dashboard shows. She could not estimate a timeline. "There are many factors that can influence the time it takes to resolve a complaint,” she said in an emailed statement. Vitalité sees COVID patients double, staff absences triple. The number of COVID - 19 patients in Vitalité Health Network hospitals has more than doubled in the past two weeks, and the number of health-care workers off for COVID-related reasons has more than tripled, figures released Thursday show.

New Brunswick has recorded two more deaths, pushing the death toll to 101, Premier Blaine Higgs announced Thursday.

He called it a "terrible milestone."

"These are not statistics, they are people with family and friends," he told the COVID briefing.

"We have had young, pregnant mothers fighting for their lives. We have lost young men, fathers, who are strong and healthy."

COVID-19: A ‘terrible milestone’ as New Brunswick surpasses 100 deaths

  COVID-19: A ‘terrible milestone’ as New Brunswick surpasses 100 deaths Circuit breaker measures that started in some regions on Oct. 8 will be extended for another seven days. They will also be extended to Zone 5 for at least 14 days. New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs announced a "terrible milestone" on Thursday as the province reported two more deaths from COVID-19, bringing the death toll to 101.

Coronavirus Death Toll . 4,913,948 deaths . 4,913,948 people have died so far from the coronavirus COVID - 19 outbreak as of October 18, 2021, 01:23 GMT. There are currently 241,456,031 confirmed cases in 221 countries and territories . The fatality rate is still being assessed . Latest findings: Age and Sex of COVID - 19 Deaths .

This article contains the case fatality rate (the number of dead among the number of diagnosed cases only), as well as death rates per 100

And while some might think the elderly people have at least lived a long and full life, he said, "the fact is, no one would want their loved one to die this way."

A person in their 80s in the Moncton region, Zone 1, and a person in their 70s in the Campbellton region, Zone 5, have died.

New Brunswick marked the highest death toll in Atlantic Canada Wednesday.

Higgs acknowledged the anger people have expressed about the province's decision to lift the mandatory order and Public Health restrictions on July 30 at 11:59 p.m., before reaching its vaccination target. Since then, 55 more people have died.

Asked whether he apologizes to New Brunswickers, Higgs replied, "As premier of the province, I take responsibility for everything, everywhere that relates to the citizens of the province.

What you need to know about COVID-19 in Ottawa on Friday, Oct. 22

  What you need to know about COVID-19 in Ottawa on Friday, Oct. 22 Here's CBC Ottawa's latest roundup of key updates during the coronavirus pandemic. Carla Qualtrough, Canada's employment minister, says it's likely that people who lose their jobs for not complying with employer COVID-19 vaccine policies will not be eligible for employment insurance.

Italy has registered 131,724 deaths linked to Covid since its outbreak emerged in February last year, the second-highest toll in Europe after Britain and the ninth-highest in the world. The country has reported 4.73 million cases to date. Patients in hospital with Covid - not including those in Russia has repeatedly broken new all-time high numbers of Covid - 19 deaths over the last three weeks amid stubbornly low vaccination rates. It is currently reporting the second-highest daily fatalities in the world after the United States. Russia’s senior scientist warned earlier on Thursday that geneticists have

Two follow- up tests, using a more accurate polymerase chain reaction, or PCR test, showed the governor didn’t have COVID. “As a former death recording clerk, I offer my thoughts on the manipulative COVID - 19 death recording directive from the National Vital Statistics System. This directive coaches physicians and vital record registrars to emphasise COVID - 19 death records by ignoring previous standardised practices in coding deaths towards the long term underlying health condition in those patients that do have a significant underlying condition that would normally be listed

"I obviously deeply regret the situation we're in right now, but I know how hard people worked here to make decisions based on the best information available at the time."

The highly transmissible delta variant driving the fourth wave has caused unanticipated challenges, he said, and vaccination rates also "slowed down dramatically."

"While we may have made mistakes along the way, this team has got us this far," Higgs said, urging people to show support.

Negative comments "hurt," he said. "While I accept this comes with the job as premier, I am very concerned that those comments will continue to demoralize the very team that we are counting on to get us through this."

A 14-day circuit breaker in several parts of the province, which was scheduled to end Friday at 6 p.m., has been extended by at least seven days, until Public Health determines the situation is more stable.

It has also been expanded to include all of the Campbellton region, Zone 5, for 14 days, beginning Friday, Oct. 22 at 6 p.m.

Undercounting of COVID - 19 pandemic deaths has been witnessed across the world. Global mortality excess estimates by the World Health Organization are significantly different from official figures, pointing to undercounting– "while 1,813,188 COVID - 19 deaths were reported in 2020

Where is Covid - 19 spreading the fastest? The US has recorded more than seven million cases - more than a fifth of the world's total. After a second wave of cases in July, numbers dropped in August but appear to be on the rise again now. Media caption, In India some suspected coronavirus patients are turned away from hospitals. Brazil has the highest number of deaths in Latin America and has recorded more than 4.7 million cases, the third highest in the world. Elsewhere in the region, newly confirmed infections are also rising quickly in Argentina, which now has more than 700,000 cases.

"We have seen encouraging data since the circuit breaker measures went into effect, but it is still too early to know if cases in the affected areas will continue to steadily decline in the days ahead," said Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health.

"If we were to remove these measures now, without knowing for certain that we are experiencing a sustained downward trend in cases and hospitalizations, we could prolong the situation even further."

The measures will be lifted when Public Health can confirm a sustained trend of decreasing numbers of cases and a decline in the seven-day average of new hospital admissions, Russell said.

The hot zones covered by the circuit breaker include: Zone 1 (Moncton region) as far north as and including Sainte-Anne-de-Kent and including Havelock in Zone 2; the northern portion of Zone 3 from and including Deerville and Florenceville-Bristol, but excluding Hayesville and Parker Ridge; and all of Zone 4 (Edmundston region) and Zone 5 (Campbellton region).

People who live in these areas must not have gatherings at private homes inside or outside with anyone who does not live at that home, with a few exceptions.

What you need to know about COVID-19 in Ottawa on Monday, Oct. 25

  What you need to know about COVID-19 in Ottawa on Monday, Oct. 25 Here's CBC Ottawa's latest roundup of key updates during the coronavirus pandemic.A worker shortage at the St. Albert Cheese Co-op started shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic began, but the situation has worsened and forced the company to cut certain products because it can't keep up with demand.

Travel to or from circuit breaker regions is restricted, except for those who must travel for essential reasons, including work, health services, child custody, childcare or post-secondary education, or travel to events where proof of vaccination is required, the province's circuit breaker website states.

The mandatory order, which has been renewed for two weeks, has been updated to state that anyone who receives a positive result from a rapid-test kit taken at home must immediately schedule an appointment for a lab-based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test at a Public Health assessment centre.

Anyone who fails to do so will be subject to fines, Premier Blaine Higgs announced Thursday.

The province has heard from businesses about employees who tested positive with a rapid test, but didn't go for a follow-up PCR test, which is considered the gold standard diagnostic test, to confirm their results, Higgs told the COVID briefing.

"This is not acceptable, he said. "Rapid tests are a tool to help us catch cases of COVID-19 early, but they only work if used properly and if people follow up on a positive result quickly."

Peace officers will investigate information received through employer testing programs and from residents to ensure individuals are complying, Higgs said.

  What you need to know about COVID-19 in Ottawa on Wednesday, Oct. 27 Here's CBC Ottawa's latest roundup of key updates during the coronavirus pandemic.GIS is an additional payment for low-income seniors and is based of annual earning. Since the CERB payments were considered taxable income, those who received CERB are seeing dramatic drops in their GIS payments.

Public Health reported 67 new cases of COVID-19 and 63 recovering, putting the province's active case count at 763.

Fifty-five people are hospitalized because of the virus, including one person 19 or under. Sixteen people are in intensive care.

Asked about the latest projections for new cases, hospitalizations, ICU admissions and deaths, Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Jennifer Russell said it's "a precarious time."

Modelling indicates "there will potentially be a downward trend," she said, but she stressed that will largely depend on people continuing to follow Public Health measures.

"We could see it as a shift in either way, and we wouldn't really want that to happen.

"We're looking for stabilization right now to get us out of this surge and get the numbers of hospitalizations as low as we can in the near future."

Dr. Jennifer Russell said the province's COVID-19 booster shots program will expand to include other priority groups in the 'coming weeks.' © Ed Hunter/CBC Dr. Jennifer Russell said the province's COVID-19 booster shots program will expand to include other priority groups in the 'coming weeks.'

Twenty-three of the people in hospital are fully vaccinated, but "most" contracted COVID in hospital, said Russell. She pointed to outbreaks at the Moncton Hospital and the Campbellton Regional Hospital.

As the province's vaccination rate increases, officials anticipate one quarter to one half of new infections will be in fully vaccinated individuals, said Russell. But they're expected to be protected from severe outcomes, hospitalizations and deaths, she said.

The currently hospitalized patients who are fully vaccinated are generally experiencing mild symptoms, but they require  additional care and protective measures, which places additional strain on the health-care system, Russell said.

She noted that the increase in these breakthrough cases makes it more important than ever to protect the most vulnerable.

Next, week, the province will begin to roll out booster doses to health-care workers and those who work in long-term care, Russell said.

Booster shots will be available to other priority groups in the "coming weeks."

There are active COVID-19 outbreaks at 11 "vulnerable settings" across the province, including nursing homes, as of Thursday.

A total of 83.1 per cent of New Brunswickers age 12 and older are fully vaccinated, up from 82.9 on Wednesday, and 91.9 per cent have received their first dose, up from 91.8.

New Brunswick has had 6,032 confirmed cases of COVID since the start of the pandemic, with 5,167 recoveries so far.

A total of 512,883 lab tests have been conducted to date.

The CEOs of the Horizon and Vitalité health networks and Health Minister Dorothy Shephard will hold a news conference Friday to provide an update on the situation at the province's hospitals.

Premier Blaine Higgs said he requested the event because he knows people have "a lot of questions."

"They are on the front lines and can better explain what is happening," he told the COVID briefing Thursday.

Both regional hospital corporations are under red alert level protocols for COVID-19 and several hospitals are operating at overcapacity.

"We need our hospitals to be in a position to not only to be able to help those with COVID 19, but also be there for those with other health issues," Higgs said.

Premier Blaine Higgs says he supports the federal government's decision to end the Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) program, effective Oct. 23.

CRB, which largely replaced the Canada Emergency Response Benefit last year, provides income support for people not covered by employment insurance.

"It goes without saying that I'm glad to see the CRB benefit end," Higgs told reporters Thursday.

COVID-19 live updates: Hospitalizations drop as Quebec reports 511 new cases, 1 death

  COVID-19 live updates: Hospitalizations drop as Quebec reports 511 new cases, 1 death Updated throughout the day on Friday, Oct. 29. Questions/comments: ariga@postmedia.com Top updates Live: Federal transport minister provides update on vaccine requirements for travellers Federal committee names several more groups that should qualify for booster shots, including adults over 70 Health officials provide federal pandemic update U.S. won’t require COVID-19 test results to cross land border, New York congressman says Hospitalizations drop as Quebec reports 511 new cases, 1 death Today is deadline for federal public employees to declare vaccination status Opinion: What I learned about online grocery shopping during the pandemic B.C.

"We have seen throughout the province, and we've heard from businesses throughout the province, that continual concern that they can't find employees," he said, implying the benefits have dissuaded some people from returning to work.

"So CRB has had a negative impact in that case."

Higgs said he discussed the issue with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about two weeks ago. "It's something that every one of my colleagues were talking about."

On Thursday, the federal government announced it will instead launch a "Canada Worker Lockdown Benefit" which will pay $300 per week to eligible workers subject to a provincial lockdown, including those ineligible for EI.

Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland said the new lockdown supports will act as an "insurance policy" so that provinces can make difficult choices when they need to and know workers will be supported.

Two other existing supports for individuals  — the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit and the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit — will be extended until May, she said, with two weeks added to the maximum duration of the benefits.

Freeland also announced the end of some pandemic support programs for businesses and changes to others.

The new measures — which come with an estimated price tag of $7.4 billion between Oct. 24 to May 7, 2022, along with high vaccination rates and the economy rebounding, should mean the "final pivot in delivering the support needed to deliver a robust recovery," she said.

New Brunswick is "on track" to have proof of vaccination QR codes ready by mid-November, said Premier Blaine Higgs.

The federal government announced Thursday that Canadians should use their provincial or territorial proof-of-vaccination documentation to travel internationally — although it will be up to foreign governments to accept them or not.

Federal officials, speaking on background during the briefing, said they worked with the provinces to come up with a "pan Canadian" format and are confident it will be widely accepted.

The standardized COVID-19 proof of vaccination includes the holder's name and date of birth, the number of doses received, the type of vaccine, lot numbers, dates of vaccination and a QR code that includes the vaccination history. Canadians can also request the proof by mail.

Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Yukon have already started issuing the standardized proof of vaccination.

The new cases are spread across all seven health zones. Here is the breakdown:

  • 14 people 19 or under
  • A person 20-29
  • Five people 40-49
  • Eight people 50-59

If they do have symptoms, they must isolate while they await their results.

For people who are fully vaccinated, Public Health recommends they monitor for symptoms for 14 days after the possible exposure and get a COVID test if symptoms develop.

Anyone who frequented the locations at the specified dates and times should also avoid visiting settings with vulnerable populations, such as nursing homes, correctional facilities and shelters, for the next 14 days.

People concerned they might have COVID-19 can take a self-assessment test online.

Public Health says symptoms of the illness have included a fever above 38 C, a new or worsening cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache, a new onset of fatigue, and difficulty breathing.

In children, symptoms have also included purple markings on the fingers and toes.

People with one of those symptoms should stay at home, call 811 or their doctor and follow instructions.
