Active COVID-19 case count in SK back below 4,000 after 694 new recoveries reported

The province is reporting 234 cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday. That is the lowest one-day total since January 5.  There are also a record 694 recoveries which brings the active case total back down below 4,000 as it sits at 3,702.

There are four more deaths to report.  One was in their 60’s in the Regina zone, one was in their 70’s from the north-central region with the other two being people aged 80 plus in the Saskatoon and southeast zones.  This brings the provincial total to 226.   The province is amending that number after the Ministry of Health said three recent deaths were not COVID-19 related as first believed.
