There are six new cases in the southeast region. None of the cases are in Southeast Zone 4, which includes Estevan. Five cases are in Southeast Zone 1, to the northwest of Zone 4, and one case is in Zone 2, to the north of Zone 4.
Of the 202 cases diagnosed in the southeast region since mid-March, 144 of them are considered active. Sixteen of the active cases are from Zone 4.
The Ministry of Health says fluctuation in daily case numbers can be expected, as a result of factors including weather-related and logistical delays in lab specimens reaching the Roy Romanow Provincial Laboratory.
