The Nunatsiavut Government (NG) wants a meeting with Premier Dwight Ball over data released by the province on April 8 which shows a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the region.
The number of COVID-19 cases in the province is now being listed by region and one is listed in Nunatsiavut on the provincial government's website.
“This is unacceptable,” said NG president Johannes Lampe in a release. “This shows a blatant lack of respect to Labrador Inuit and the Nunatsiavut Government.”
According to the release, there are no confirmed cases in any of their five communities on the Labrador coast and the person referenced in the data was outside of the Labrador Inuit Settlement Area when diagnosed, and has fully recovered.
“At no time was the individual in any Labrador Inuit community from the time of diagnosis until recovery,” the release states.
NG said due to privacy, no information that may identify the individual would be released.
