10 new cases of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia brings total to 51

Nova Scotia has announced new cases of COVID-19, bringing the provincial total to 51. 

In a news release, the province said the cases are connected to family groups who travelled outside Canada, or are connected to ones that were reported earlier.

The province said none of the cases came from community spread.

Of the 51 cases, one person is in hospital, while another has recovered from COVID-19 and the province classifies that case as “resolved.”

On Monday, Dr. Robert Strang said the illness typically runs its course in about 10 days, and people who were considered to have recovered from the virus would be able to resume their normal activities, while observing the same physical distancing as everyone else. 

The province has completed 2,474 negative tests for COVID-19.

The early symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to a common cold or seasonal flu, and can include fever, cough, difficulty breathing and pneumonia in both lungs.

On Sunday, the province declared a state of emergency that will last until at least April 5.
