Another six patients died of COVID-19 in Niagara hospitals last night.

The sad statistic pushed the total up to 476 in the region, representing a 1.55 per cent fatality rate among Niagarans who have been infected.

There were another 219 known cases today (January 27) and while the health unit is emphasizing that case counts are underestimated, that number is up against 329 resolved one, leaving Niagara with 3,461 known cases.

There are presently 129 COVID-19 hospital patients in Niagara hospitals – 26 of them in the ICU.

St. Catharines continues to lead the caseload in the region with 1,020 known followed by Niagara Falls with 747 and Welland showing 403 known cases. Fort Erie follows with 202 while Grimsby and Lincoln are virtually deadlocked at 176 and 175. Port Colborne is showing 161 known cases followed by Thorold with 144 and Niagara-on-the-Lake at 137. At the bottom is Pelham with 113, West Lincoln at 102 and Wainfleet with just 32.

Some 974,049 vaccinations have been given in Niagara with 82.6 per cent of eligible Niagara residents getting their first jab and 77.8 per cent fully-vaxxed.
