Timmins is by far the largest community in Porcupine Health Unit territory, so it figures that it would have the most cases of COVID-19.  In fact, all seven of the new cases reported today are in the city.

PHU says one is the result of “community exposure” — without specifying exactly where — and the other six were exposed to earlier reported cases.  They’re all in self-isolation.

That brings the total to 159 in the region.  Twenty-eight of them were diagnosed since New Year’s.
