Today (July 13) marks the lowest new COVID-19 case count for the entire year in Niagara Region at just one. It beats the previous low count set on July 6 at two.

Coupled with the fact that five more cases were resolved today and for the first time since the pandemic numbers soared in April 2020, the active cases have finally dropped below 80 at 79.

Niagara Public Health is crediting the drop with the large amounts of vaccination that have been administered to residents.

As of July 11, a total of 539,713 doses of vaccine have been administered to Niagara residents. The Region has a total population of 447,888 though children under 12 are not being vaccinated.

On that date, the Region announced 67.4 per cent of residents have received their first dose while 45.3 per cent have been fully vaccinated.

The clinic at St Catharines’ Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre has been the single busiest in the region as they passed the 200,000 vaccination mark on July 5.
