Four more New Brunswickers have died from COVID-19 in the past week, hospitalizations because of the virus have increased, and the number of new positive cases has nearly doubled, figures released by the province Tuesday show.

More increases are likely, including the possibility of a new wave, said Dr. Jennifer Russell, the province’s chief medical officer of health.
