The Covid Response Centre has announced that 90% of deaths have been amongst the unvaccinated, with 83% of those infected who are listed as ‘yellow’ are also unvaccinated.
Yesterday 271 people tested positive in the province, with 99 being added to the critical list. The number of deaths yesterday was three which brings the total number of deaths from Covid in the province to 99, a concerning number as they appear not to be slowing down.
The vast majority of deaths have been amongst the over sixties, or those with prior health issues, says the centre.
Authorities are urging the public, especially the elderly or ill, to please get vaccinated as soon as possible.
