The number of COVID-19 diagnoses in our region keeps climbing.  On Easter Sunday morning, the Porcupine Health Unit reported two more positive test results.

One of the patients lives in Timmins and picked up the virus from another case.  The other one lives somewhere between Smooth Rock Falls and Matheson.  How they contracted it is under investigation.

That brings the total since the arrival of the pandemic to 369.  The health unit does not specify how many cases are currently active.

UPDATE AT 4:00pm: One more case in Timmins caused by exposure to a previous case, bringing total to 370.
