Saskatchewan has reported its 14th death from COVID-19 Thursday - an unnamed person in their 70s from the far north.
The announcement came July 2, along with the announcement of 10 new COVID-19 cases - four on Canada Day and six July 2. Out of the 10 cases, seven are in the far north, two are in the north and one was in Saskatoon.
The identity or home community of the latest COVID-19 was not released by the province, nor was any additional information about the new cases found in the far north or north.
A silver lining could be found in the number of reported recoveries found in Saskatchewan in the past two days. In total, 17 people who had previously had COVID-19 were reported as having recovered from the disease. Saskatchewan currently has 80 active cases of COVID-19, with most in northern regions - 46 in the far north, eight in the north. No cases have been confirmed in Saskatchewan communities near Flin Flon.
Six people are hospitalized with COVID-19 in Saskatchewan. Three people are intensive care, with two in Saskatoon and one in an unidentified north region facility.
Manitoba seems to be all quiet on the COVID-19 front. No new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Manitoba July 2, with 16 active cases remaining in the province. No Manitobans are currently hospitalized with COVID-19. No cases in northern Manitoba have been reported since April 8.
