Two more Saskatchewan residents have died after testing positive for COVID-19. A total of 893 people have died from COVID-19 in the province.

There are 1,324 cases considered active as of Saturday, following 170 more cases deemed recovered.

Saskatchewan has 168 people in hospital related to COVID-19, including 48 patients in intensive care. Additionally, 12 residents are receiving care in out-of-province ICUs. One patient was repatriated since Friday’s update.

Of those hospitalized cases, 108, or 64.3 per cent, were not fully vaccinated.

The seven-day average of daily new COVID-19 cases is 117, or 9.7 per 100,000 population.
