finger at those he called, the selfish few.

During Monday’s COVID-19 briefing, Rankin provided an update noting there are 42 people in hospital and 8 in the ICU. He said the average age of those in the hospital is between 40 and 60, but they are admitting young people who are very sick . Rankin said this due to the variants.

Rankin also noted Halifax police issued 37 fines related to infractions of gathering limit rules over the weekend.


When it comes to getting people vaccinated, Rankin said the province is in a race against the variants. While province continues to push it’s immunization program, people need to follow public health protocols.
