6 new COVID-19 cases, 7 recoveries in Sask. Saturday


The Saskatchewan government confirmed six new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday as well as seven recoveries, bringing the number of active cases in the province to 103. All new cases are located in the far north, depending on the province.

To date, Saskatchewan has confirmed 777 cases of COVID-19. Thirteen people died and 661 people recovered. The province also noted that 10 cases previously attributed to Saskatchewan had been subtracted from the overall total as directed by the Public Health Agency of Canada as of June 27.

“The number of cases may change with the provision of additional information during the public health investigation,” said Saturday’s COVID-19 update.

One case was mentioned on Saturday as having been removed from the fact that an individual in the far north had, by mistake, reported his case twice in a “positive repeat”.

Thirty-nine cases are currently under investigation by public health officials.

Six people are currently hospitalized in the province for the virus.

The number of tests done for the virus in Saskatchewan to date is 64,161.
