There was one (1) new death reported in the 60 to 69 range in the Regina zone.

The new cases are located in the Far Northwest (4), Far Northeast (3), Northwest (17), North Central (9), Northeast (1), Saskatoon (72), Central West (15), Central East (22), Regina (96), Southwest (10), South Central (17) and Southeast (22) zones. Twelve (12) new cases have pending residence information. Three (3) cases with pending residence information have been assigned to the Central West (1) and Regina (2) zones. There are a total of 33,600 recoveries and 2,549 cases are considered active.

One hundred ninety-eight (198) people are in hospital. One hundred fifty-seven (157) people are receiving inpatient care: Far Northwest (2), Far Northeast (1), Northwest (4), North Central (7), Northeast (2), Saskatoon (46), Central East (10), Regina (77), Southwest (1) and Southeast (7). Forty-one (41) people are in intensive care: North Central (3), Saskatoon (5), Central East (3), Regina (26), Southwest (1) and South Central (3).

The seven-day average of daily new cases is 261 (21.3 new cases per 100,000). A chart comparing today’s average to data collected over the past several months is available on the Government of Saskatchewan website at

There were 3,093 COVID-19 tests processed in Saskatchewan April 11.

To date, 707,648 COVID-19 tests have been processed in Saskatchewan. As of April 10, 2021, when other provincial and national numbers were available, Saskatchewan’s per capita rate was 593,594 tests performed per million population. The national rate was 763,047 tests performed per million population.

As of April 12, 3,485 variants of concern have been identified by screening in Saskatchewan, reported in the Far Northwest (7), Far Northeast (1), Northwest (13), North Central (39), Northeast (3), Saskatoon (181), Central West (13), Central East (94), Regina (2,423), Southwest (33), South Central (309) and Southeast (348) zones. There are 21 cases with residence pending.

These were previously reported as “presumptive positives,” but all screening tests will be considered confirmed VOCs for the purposes of public reporting and contact investigations. There were zero (0) new lineage results being reported today. Of the 1,435 VOCs with lineages identified by whole genome sequencing in Saskatchewan, 1,426 are B. (UK) and nine are B.1.351 (SA). The Regina zone accounts for 1,131 (79 per cent) of the VOC cases with confirmed lineage reported in Saskatchewan.

Please note that these VOC may have been initially identified via means other than screening (i.e. selection for whole genome sequencing without screening) and that whole genome sequencing results to identify lineage are included in the screening results.

Confirmed variant of concern cases may appear in both columns on the website, depending on testing for that case. Adding the cases identified by screening and those that have received whole genome sequencing may result in double-counting individual cases.
