The announcement of the four new cases came after the province’s chief medical officer of health confirmed three new positive cases of Covid-19.  Of the seven cases announced over the weekend, six had a link to travel to Iran and one case has recently visited Egypt.

Covid-19 started in China and has now spread to more than 60 countries with more than 3,000 deaths. The World Health Organization says as of March 1, there have been more than 87,000 cases reported, the majority are in China.
