Two new cases of the novel coronavirus were identified in New Brunswick on Monday, bringing the total number of cases in the province to 103.
At a press briefing, Dr. Jennifer Russell, the province’s chief medical officer of health, said the new cases are of individuals in the Moncton region in their 30s and 40s. Both are connected to previous known cases.
“We are faring better than other jurisdictions… Hospital admission is relatively few,” said Russell.
“Community transmission is relatively rare and that’s why we shouldn’t relax,” she added.
Russell stressed continuing to maintain physical distancing, avoid gatherings and thoroughly wash hands.
Premier Blaine Higgs announced at the press briefing that a pandemic task force has been established by the provincial government to help combat COVID-19.
