After a nasty weekend that saw 78 new COVID-19 in Niagara Region, the week is beginning to look like the calm after the storm.

After 18 new cases were announced yesterday, today (November 16) dropped a little more with 17 cases in the region.

A huge upside is that there were 51 resolved in Niagara, dropping the outstanding cases to 231 as opposed to 268 yesterday.

St. Catharines (with the largest population) continues to lead the caseload with 76 while Lincoln and Niagara Falls are virtually neck-and-neck with 35 and 34 cases respectively.

Fort Erie, who just last week had the region’s second-highest count, dropped to fourth with 24 cases followed by Welland with 21. Niagara-on-the-Lake remain in the double digits with 12.

The remaining six municipalities run from a low of three cases in Pelham and Thorold to a high of six cases in West Lincoln.
