The number of cases for Bulletin 823 was 603, down from 794 on the previous day. This number compares to the 7-day nationwide average for confirmed lab-reported cases that is now 785, on the decline. Nevertheless, active cases increased to 3,940 from 3,611. Ronald Skewes, director of Epidemiology at the Ministry of Public Health says that in context the increase in cases is well below the Omicron wave that occurred over the holidays.

The Ministry of Public Health recommends getting the third and fourth booster vaccines. The third booster is now highly recommended for children from 12 years now that there have been outbreaks in private and public schools.

The fourth booster is available for those 18 years and older. The fourth booster can be applied four months after the third booster. It is recommended especially for those over 50 years of age and those with depressed immune systems.
