Saskatchewan added another 52 cases of coronavirus over the weekend bringing the total number in the province to 156.
The province is now reporting a total of three people who attended a recent snowmobile rally supper in Christopher Lake have tested positive for COVID-19.
It says to date an additional 18 coronavirus cases have been linked to the Mar. 14 event where more than 110 people attended.
Provincial officials continue to advise anyone who attended this supper to contact the Saskatchewan Health Authority’s 811 number.
The SHA says seven of the total number of cases are the result of local transmission while the others are travel or “cluster” related due to exposure at mass gatherings.
The province says six people in hospital are known to have the novel coronavirus.
Two of these patients are in intensive care.
The government continues to provide only vague information on where COVID-19 cases are located in the province.
Under this data, the province is split into six regions – Saskatoon, Regina, Far North, North, Central, and South.
The government is reporting 33 cases in the North region and three cases in Far North.
One case in North is a hospital inpatient (not intensive care).
The province says five of these cases – one in Far North and four in North – have recovered from the virus.
The Northern Inter-Tribal Health Authority and Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation have confirmed two of the total number of cases in northern Saskatchewan is in the community of Southend.
Other than that, little has been publicly released on where exactly the other 34 cases in northern Saskatchewan are.
Organizations, such as the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, continue to push the provincial government to provide more detailed figures on where these cases are located.
The FSIN says remote and northern Indigenous communities cannot prepare for a potential coronavirus outbreak unless they have this more detailed data.
The province says the majority of COVID-19 cases are over the age of 19.
Sixty-nine cases are in the 20-44 age range, 59 in the 45-64 range and 23 are over 65.
Fifty-eight per cent are male and 42 per cent female.
