OHSWEKEN — Three more people from Six Nations have lost their lives to COVID-19. On Monday February 7, Six Nations announced the three deaths along with 36 active COVID cases currently with 16 new cases reported in the last 7 days.
Currently there are 134 people in self isolation. There are 5 people in hospital.
Six Nations is staying steady at 70% of all cases occurring in unvaccinated people.
New to the statistics update is a notice that Ohsweken Public Health is not tracking variants.
“At this time all COVID-19 cases are presumed the Omicron variant, COVID-19 cases will not be screened for the Omicron variant,” says the statement.
Over the course of the pandemic there have been just under 1500 people who have confirmed contracted the virus. It is widely assumed that results across the province do not reflect the actual case numbers of Omicron as testing standards have changed and backlogs have prevented confirmation by PCR testing.
In total, 22 people from Six Nations have died since the beginning of the pandemic.
