All five of the confirmed Covid-19 cases in the NWT have recovered, the Department of Health and Social Services (HSS) said on Monday morning.

“I am excited to announce that, as of today, all of Northwest Territories’ Covid-19 cases to date are recovered,” said chief public health officer Kami Kandola in a tweet.

The news comes just three days after HSS announced that a third case had recovered from the virus.

The territory’s five infected patients were from Yellowknife, Inuvik and Fort Resolution.

As of Monday, there have been at least 1,574 tests for coronavirus conducted in the NWT, with 27 results pending, HSS said.

Across Canada there were at least 35,392 confirmed cases of Covid-19 and 1,611 deaths, the Public Health Agency of Canada said in a report on Monday.
