Nunavut’s COVID-19 case count remained steady at three on Sunday, with the territorial government reporting no new cases and no new recoveries.

Premier Joe Savikataaq reported on Twitter that there was no change in Sunday’s number compared to Saturday’s.

All three cases are in Iqaluit, where there has been an outbreak of the respiratory illness since mid-April.

On Saturday, the number of active cases dropped to seven from 10 because seven recoveries were confirmed.

Across Canada, there were 25,339 active cases of COVID-19 as of Saturday night, according to the federal government’s COVID-19 website. There have been nearly 1.4 million cases reported in total. There have been 25,712 deaths in Canada. Four deaths have been recorded in Nunavut.

Government of Nunavut officials are scheduled to hold a detailed news briefing Monday. While the legislature has been sitting, updates have been given to reporters at the legislative assembly building instead of streaming them online, which had been the practice before MLAs started meeting last month for their spring sitting.
