With 13 new COVID-19 cases today in Niagara Region but 52 resolved, region drops to 194 ongoing cases

While the 13 new COVID-19 cases in Niagara Region today (November 23) are hardly ideal from a health standpoint, after just eight new cases yesterday, that marks the lowest two-day total in a few months.

And with a huge 52 resolved cases today, Niagara dropped below 200 ongoing cases, registering at 194 – also the first sub-200 dip in recent months.

Whereas since the summer, a smaller percentage have been identified as the Delta variant – usually less than 10 per cent – while the remainder are considered “likely” Delta, these days, there is little doubt as 70 per cent are absolutely Delta and just 30 per cent are “likely” the strain.

The municipalities numbers are likewise dropping. While St. Catharines remains the highest at 72 ongoing cases, the remainder of the double-digits towns/cities are starting to sink. Welland and Lincoln are next up with 20 and 19 cases respectively while Niagara Falls and Fort Erie (which has spent months exchanging the number two and three spots) have just 17 and 14 ongoing cases.

Rounding out the double-digits is Pelham with 15 ongoing. The remaining six municipalities run from a low of three cases in West Lincoln to eight cases apiece in Thorold and Niagara-on-the-Lake.
