When November started in Niagara Region, it began with promise. There were just two new COVID-19 cases on November 1.

It didn’t stay that way. The remainder of the month saw double-digit new cases almost every day, hitting a peak on November 13 with 49 new cases in that one day.

In fact, November 22 with just six new cases was the only other single-digit day of the month. October saw four single-digit days while September saw none.

Today, the region reported 19 new cases for the second straight day but with 32 cases resolved, the region dropped to 192 ongoing cases. There are presently 11 people in Niagara hospitals – three in the ICU.

On the positive side, however, despite vaccinations just starting on the weekend for five to 11 year olds in Niagara Region, over 1,000 first doses have been administered to that age group in three days.

St. Catharines continues to lead the caseloads with 71 followed with a big drop-off in Niagara Falls with 28 cases and Welland with 20 ongoing. From there, it drops further to 19 in Fort Erie and 12 in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The remaining seven municipalities run from a low of one case in Wainfleet up to nine cases in both Lincoln and Pelham.
