NB reports 118 COVID-19 cases on Sunday


New Brunswick reported 118 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, along with 87 recoveries, bringing the total number of active cases in the province to 752 cases.

The province has been engaged in level one of its COVID-19 winter action plan as of 11:59 p.m. on Saturday.

The province’s three-tier plan is to help limit the spread of COVID-19 during the winter months. It will be reevaluated in the spring.

Details of New Brunswick’s COVID-19 plan can be found on the province’s website.

Public Health also said in a statement Sunday that a person between the ages of 80 and 89 died in Zone 2 (Saint John’s area).


The emergency department has 16 people, the hospital has 30 people, bringing the total number of people in the hospital to 46 people.

Public health said there are 9 people on ventilators. Of those hospitalized, 22 are over 60 years old.

There is also a person under the age of 19 hospitalized.

According to the province, 14 of the 46 people initially hospitalized were hospitalized for other reasons, and they contracted COVID-19 from the outbreak at hospitals in Moncton, Saint John and Miramichi.


Case numbers broken down by New Brunswick’s seven health districts:

  • Region 1 – Moncton Region: 23 confirmed cases (180 active cases)
  • Region 2 – Saint John Region: 18 confirmed cases (187 active cases)
  • Region 3 – Fredericton Region: 53 confirmed cases (223 active cases)

The province says 82% of eligible New Brunswickers are fully immunized against COVID-19 and 87.3% have received their first dose of the vaccine.

The booster dose is currently available to people over 65, while the booster dose will apparently be extended to people over 50 next week and to 40 in the coming weeks.

The province says hospitalization and ICU rates, as well as new cases, continue to affect those who are not vaccinated the most.
