    Newfoundland and Labrador have recorded 15 deaths, while Prince Edward Island has had none.

    Three people in their 60s – one in the Edmundston region, Zone 4, and two in the Bathurst region, Zone 6 – a person in their 80s in the Campbellton region, Zone 5, and a person 90 or over in the Moncton region, Zone 1, have died "as a result of COVID-19."...

            N.B. COVID-19 roundup: 2 more deaths, circuit breaker expanded and extended
            31 people in hospital, including 16 in intensive care
            Bobbi-Jean MacKinnon · CBC News · Posted: Oct 28, 2021 11:10 AM AT | Last Updated: 13 minutes ago

            New Brunswick recorded two more COVID-related deaths Thursday and 69 new cases of COVID.

            But there are "hopeful signs" the pandemic is starting to recede, said Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health.

            New cases have decreased by 50 per cent and active cases by a third since circuit breakers were implemented, she told the COVID briefing.

            Still, Public Health is concerned about the rise of cases in Zone 2, particularly in Saint John and the surrounding areas, Russell said. It has the highest positivity rate in the province.

            As a result, Premier Blaine Higgs announced the circuit breaker will be expanded to include a larger part of the Saint John region, as of Friday at 6 p.m., and extended for at least seven days.

            It may feel like a setback, he said, but it's a "cautionary move" to ensure cases and hospitalizations "don't get away from us."

            The circuit breaker already includes Zone 1, Moncton region, as far north as and including Sainte-Anne-de-Kent; the northern portion of Zone 3 from and including Deerville and Florenceville-Bristol, but excluding Hayesville and Parker Ridge; as well as all of Zone 4, the Edmundston region. The Campbellton region, Zone 5, is also under a circuit breaker.

            There are 549 active cases across the province.

            Thirty-one people are in hospital because of the virus, down from 33, including 16 in intensive care, an increase of one...
