After weeks of elevated daily COVID-19 cases counts, Niagara posted only one new novel coronavirus case on Tuesday and the number of active cases in the community fell significantly.
However, one day of data does not make a trend, and Niagara has been regularly posting double digit daily case counts since late September. There were 16 cases on Monday and Saturday, and seven on Sunday.
Nevertheless, the number of active cases fell to 99 from 116, the first time there has been less than 100 active infections since Sept. 30.
There were no new deaths related to COVID-19 since Oct. 5, leaving the number of Niagara residents who lost their lives during the pandemic at a reported 65. Over the weekend the number of hospitalizations locally fell to one from three.
The single case confirmed Tuesday brings Niagara’s historic pandemic total to 1,213.
