214 people are in hospital. 184 are in getting inpatient care with another 30 getting intensive care.

The seven-day daily average of new cases is at 223 or 18.2 new cases per 100,000 population.

When it comes to vaccines, the province says there were 509 COVID-19 vaccine doses administered yesterday in Saskatchewan, bringing the total number of vaccines administered in the province to 42,987. Due to extreme weather and reporting delays, the number of vaccines administered yesterday was lower than targeted. Second doses in the Far North Central region will continue on February 9th to align with the first dose schedule, and has further contributed to lower administration numbers yesterday. With this, 96 per cent of the doses received have been administered to date.

The 509 doses were administered in the following zones: Far North West (61) and Far North East (448). An additional 182 doses were administered in the North West zone on February 6.
This week’s Pfizer allocation of 1,950 doses is scheduled to arrive in Prince Albert on Thursday, February 11. These are the second doses required to complete the Prince Albert Phase 1 of long-term care and priority population.
