Sunday, August 9

A week with a clean bill of health

With Sunday's C19 provincial update announcing there are no new cases, this makes seven days since Nova Scotia has had a diagnosis. To go with this welcome development, one of the two patients who's been fighting the disease this week has recovered! Now all the COVID-19 in the province is reduced to a single person, and they aren't in the hospital.

You've seen this movie before. And by movie we mean COVID-19 status report from the province. No new cases, the two active cases still active, yet another two-week renewal for Nova Scotia's state of emergency.

Today's report from the province has a familiar bottom line: No new cases, the two active cases are still active. That's five days in a row without a COVID-19 diagnosis, a fine way to end the work week.

Thursday, August 6

The streak continues

Four days without a case reported by the province, and the two active cases are still active. 

Wednesday, August 5

New cases? Not this day

Although two patients are still actively fighting their COVID-19 infections after last week’s small flurry of diagnoses, today’s report from the province says nobody else has caught the disease yet. That makes three days in a row without new cases.

Tuesday, August 4

Back to work, except for the coronavirus

People returned to the grind today after the long weekend, but luckily COVID-19 didn’t—the province is reporting no new cases today. That's the second case-free day in a row. Not a lot of clear days, but better than zero. 🏆

Monday, August 3

COVID-19 takes a break on Natal Day

There are no new cases in the province’s report for the holiday, but things get even better. After four cases diagnosed last week leading to four active cases yesterday, two of those patients have already recovered safely from the dumb disease. Nova Scotia now has just two active cases.
