Two more deaths linked to the virus were added today to the total death toll in the province, which now stands at 9,754.

With 488 more cases now considered resolved, the number of known active cases in the province stands at 5,004, about 600 fewer active infections than those reported last Monday.

Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 588,612 laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 573,854 recoveries.
