Another 17 new recoveries from COVID-19 were reported Sunday by the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

The number of recoveries now stands at 164 as of Sunday.

The SHA also announced nine new cases - seven are confirmed and the other two are presumptive - pushing the total to 298 overall.

The presumptive cases are due to new testing machines around the province, the SHA notes.

A new machine is now online at the Roy Romanow Provincial Lab (RRPL) in Regina. Meadow Lake has also started testing as well. However, both new testing options will need confirmation from the existing machine at the RRPL for the time being.

A total of 19,276 tests for the coronavirus have been performed so far.

There are now seven people in the hospital around the province - none of which are in an intensive care unit.

It's also been a week straight that the south region of the province has had 15 reported confirmed cases as well - the active case total in the south is down to nine.
