While there were 29 new COVID-19 cases in Niagara Region today (December 7), it was somewhat offset by 67 ongoing cases being resolved – the largest single-day recovery number in the region since the pandemic began in March 2020.

That dropped the active cases below 300 to 264 after it peaked at 303 yesterday.

However, the number of people in Niagara hospitals today jumped up to 19 – seven of those in ICU.

Niagara Falls saw a significant spike up to 66 cases, just one behind region leader St. Catharines at 67. From there, it drops down to Welland, Fort Erie and Grimsby with 28, 26 and 21 cases respectively.

From there, Lincoln and Niagara-on-the-Lake have 14 and 12 cases each. The remaining five municipalities range from one case in Wainfleet up to eight apiece in West Lincoln and Thorold.

At this point, 18 per cent of Niagara kids, aged five to 11, have had their first shot, including this brother-sister team below, posted on Twitter by a proud mom yesterday.
