Three new deaths were reported on Sunday, bringing the province's total COVID-19 death toll to 12,734.

The province reported 4,098 new COVID-19 cases through limited PCR testing on Sunday. The province has said the count may be higher because of cases that were not reported in the last few days due to service degradation in its case and contact management system. 

The seven-day average of new cases was 3,162 on Sunday.

A total of 16,139 tests were completed in the previous day. The province said the test positivity rate was 15.5 per cent on Sunday.
