It’s the first day over the 500-case mark after three days below. There were 485 cases reported on Wednesday.

The Ministry of Health notes that due to a data clean-up, 15 of the deaths being reported Thursday occurred more than two months ago.

There were 456 cases are in individuals who are not fully vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status and 75 are in fully vaccinated.

The number of patients fighting COVID-19 in ICU is also unavailable due to a “technical issue,” the Ministry said.

In a tweet, Health Minister Christine Elliott said 170 people are hospitalized with COVID-19 (excluding ICU).

Of those patients, 163 are not fully vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status, while 13 are fully vaccinated.
