The number of active COVID-19 cases being reported in Saskatchewan has fallen below 900 for the first time since early November.

Ninety-eight more people have recovered, increasing the provincial total to 46,311 recoveries.

Meanwhile, residents of a townhouse complex in Melbourne's CBD are being ordered to isolate for up to a fortnight after authorities established a link between two coronavirus cases who live there.

Over 800 cases of rare heart problems have been reported following vaccinations with the COVID-19 vaccines made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said.

There are 96 people in hospital.

The person who died was in 80-plus age range and from the Saskatoon zone. There were 295 doses administered with zone of residence pending.

There were 2,165 COVID-19 tests processed in Saskatchewan on June 10.

It concluded that the antibody response with a single dose of vaccine given at 3-6 months after recovery from COVID-19 may be considered at par with two doses of vaccine for individuals already infected with COVID-19. Sixty-eight per cent of those 18+ have received their first dose, while sixty-six per cent of those 12+ have also received their first dose.

Mr O'Loughlin said: "The HSE and the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (Niac) are not supporting that yet so anyone who has had their first dose of AstraZeneca is going to have to wait to get their second dose of AstraZeneca from the vaccination programme".

Seventy-nine per cent of those over the age of 40 have received their first dose.
