Right now there are 85 active cases of COVID-19 in Nunavut, with 83 of those are in Iqaluit. Eight of the cases are at the biggest prison in Nunavut, the Baffin Correctional Centre. So far, two people have been flown to Ottawa due to COVID-19 complications. But maybe the most concerning news is that 23 of the cases are in people 18 years old or younger. That youth number was fewer than five last Friday. Nunavut's chief public health officer explains the jump.
