Of the total COVID-19 cases, 14 individuals are hospitalized, five of whom are in intensive care. The remaining people with COVID-19 are recovering at home in self-isolation.
For the province wide review the five Health Authorities reported the following:
1,023 cases of COVID-19 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 1,659 in the Fraser Health region, 135 in the Island Health region, 216 in the Interior Health region, 65 in the Northern Health region, a number that has held for a month now.
The public health officials also made note of 51 cases of COVID for people who reside outside of Canada.
"There have been no new COVID-19 related deaths, for a total of 189 deaths in British Columbia. We offer our condolences to everyone who has lost their loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With a bit of a spike in recent cases, Dr. Henry and Minister Dix made note of the need to hold to the measures of the last few months to help guide the province through the summer.
“We are concerned about the increase in new cases in recent days as COVID-19 continues to silently circulate in our communities. While early on, many of our long-term care and assisted living facilities were impacted, most of the new cases are in the broader community.
Here in British Columbia, as we spend more time with others, we need to find our balance with COVID-19. We need to minimize the number of cases, manage new cases as they emerge and modify our activities accordingly.
To do this, we all have to do our part by continuing to use our layers of protection and following our rules for safe social interactions.
No one wants to get sick with COVID-19, nor do we want to inadvertently pass it onto others. While the symptoms can be mild, it is a complex illness that has serious consequences.
Let’s enjoy the summer safely and continue to do all we can to protect our neighbours, our friends and our loved ones.”
