Sports Bus Carrying New Brunswick Junior Hockey Team Involved in Fatal Crash
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.
