In other places rocked by high daily COVID-19 case numbers, this would be a minor blip. For the Porcupine Health Unit, however, today’s 14 is unusual. With that, the number currently active jumps to 17.
Only one of the new cases is in Timmins. The other 13 are in what PHU designates as “the Cochrane, Iroquois Falls, Matheson and Smooth Rock Falls area”.
