The number of cases of COVID-19 continues to climb in Saskatchewan.
As of March 26, 2020, the province of Saskatchewan has nine new, confirmed cases of COVID-19. That brings the province’s total to 95 cases.
According to a news release, there are no new presumptive cases awaiting testing, meaning that all cases to date are confirmed.
Three people have recovered from the virus, although it is possible there are others.
Thus far, just five people have been hospitalized, including three in Regina — with one in the Intensive Care Unit — and two in Saskatoon, with one in the ICU.
Five cases are a result of local transmission, while the rest are travel-related.
To date, 45 cases are in the 20-44 age range; 32 are in the 45-64 range; and 14 cases have been confirmed in the 65-plus range. Fifty-seven per cent of the cases are males and 43 per cent are females.
A total of 6,915 COVID-19 tests have been performed by the Roy Romanow Provincial Laboratory. Case surveillance and testing information, including regional locations of confirmed and presumptive cases is available at www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19.
