Another Chatham-Kent resident has passed away from COVID-19, bringing the total number of deaths from the virus to 25.

According to Dr. David Colby, Chatham-Kent’s medical officer of health, the patient was a male in his 90s who was fully vaccinated.

According to Colby the rising number of local cases – 26 new today – is straining the health-care system.

At the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance, there are 10 COVID positive cases in hospital, all of which are unvaccinated. There are six COVID-19 patients in the ICU, with five on ventilators.

One vented Chatham-Kent resident had to be moved to a hospital in Woodstock due to pressure on the system.

Six surgeries have been cancelled in recent days due to the influx of COVID-19 patients.

Overall, CK Public Health figures show three more cases of COVID-19 today in the municipality, at 149, as with the 26 new cases came 22 more deemed resolved and the one death.
