The statement further added that 1,104 cases are considered active in the province and 77,778 cases are considered recovered.
As of November 17th, a total of 168 individuals are hospitalized, including 126 inpatient hospitalizations, and 42 ICU hospitalizations, the Saskatchewan Government said, adding that of the 168 patients, 112 (66.7%) were not fully vaccinated.
The Saskatchewan Government also added that in addition to SK ICUs, there are 11 residents in out-of-province ICUs. As these patients are receiving care out of province, this number is not included in the hospitalization counts in the dashboard.
