Resolved COVID-19 cases in Niagara Region continue to outpace new ones


Published January 21, 2022 at 5:01 pm

There was another COVID-19 death in a Niagara Region hospital last night, pushing the fatality rate to 462 since the pandemic began.

Perhaps the most positive to the daily numbers is that daily resolved cases continue to outpace the daily new cases, although the Niagara Region Health is continuing to note that the numbers they are presenting are “underestimations” of the actual cases.

With 239 new known cases announced today (January 21) in Niagara – third-lowest total in January – it was offset by 480 resolved cases, bringing the active case total to 4,332.

St. Catharines continues to be the caseload leader with 1,255 known cases followed by Niagara Falls at 949 and Welland with 515. Fort Erie is currently sitting at 315 known cases with Lincoln and Thorold trailing at 224 and 203 respectively. Grimsby is next at 182, just ahead of Port Colborne at 165 and Niagara-on-the-Lake at 162. At the bottom are Pelham with 125 known cases, West Lincoln at 107 and Wainfleet with 42.
