Niagara Region is far from out of the woods when it comes to new cases of COVID-19 but if nothing else, it would appear numbers are declining.

That said, if the pandemic has taught us anything over the past two-and-a-half years, it’s take appearance can be deceiving. Quite often, a few days of lulls are followed by next day spikes.

As of yesterday (September 12), there have been five more COVID-19 deaths in the last 14 days, bringing the total to 607 region-wide.

Currently, there are 782 active cases and Niagara has seen a total of 45,503 since the pandemic began in March 2020.

In the past four weeks, 76 people have been hospitalized with cases with 11 being admitted to the ICU.

As you can see from the chart below, running from August 30 to September 12, cases started quite high, dropping slowing with two separate case spikes in the middle.
