REGINA — The Saskatchewan government's COVID-19 website says there are no intensive care beds available in six regions of the province.

They include western, central and eastern areas in the far north, as well as the northwest, central-west and the southeast.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority has said it is working to add 191 hospital beds to accommodate people ill from the virus.

For the ninth time this month, Saskatchewan has broken a new record for patients hospitalized with COVID-19.

The province is reporting 311 people in hospital — 65 of whom are receiving intensive care — 449 new cases and 10 more deaths.

Saskatchewan first broke its hospitalization record on Sept. 19 and has set a new one almost every day since.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 28, 2021.
