Nova Scotia is reporting four COVID-19 deaths in the past week and a daily average of 213 lab-confirmed cases in its latest update.

The figures are from a seven-day period that ended June 27.

There were a total of 1,491 positive PCR tests, a slight increase from last week. That number does not include positive rapid test results.

Three of the people who died were over the age of 70, and one person was between 50 and 69.

One of the people who died was either unvaccinated or only had one dose of the vaccine. The remaining three had at least three doses. One of the people who died was also a resident of a long-term care home.

Since March 2020, there have been 442 COVID-19 deaths in Nova Scotia. About three-quarters of those deaths happened during the Omicron wave, which began Dec. 8, 2021.
