Resolved COVID-19 cases continue to outpace news ones in Niagara


Published January 26, 2022 at 4:44 pm

While Niagara Region Public Health continues to note that due to a shortage of testing, they know the numbers they offer up daily are “underestimations,” the fact is for more than a week, resolved COVID-19 cases in Niagara continue to outpace the new daily cases.

More of the same today (January 26) as the region said there were 225 known new cases versus 352 known resolved ones.

That leaves Niagara sitting with 3,585 known active cases of the virus.

St. Catharine is the highest municipality in terms of caseload with 1,043 but that’s the closest it’s been to triple digits in more than a month. Niagara Falls is next with 760 followed by Welland at 430.

From there, it’s a considerable drop to Fort Erie at 220 while Lincoln and Grimsby are pretty much deadlocked with 183 and 181 respectively. Thorold is showing 172 known cases while Port Colborne and Niagara-on-the-Lake are almost the same at 148 and 146. At the bottom are Pelham with 111, West Lincoln at 104 and Wainfleet showing 32.
