Another 150 plus day of new cases of COVID for BC

British Columbia continued on its pace of over 150 new cases of COVID to report today, with the Wednesday report form Dr. Bonnie Henry picking where we left off on Tuesday following the Thanksgiving weekend.

In addition to the continued rise in new cases, the listings of active cases increased by twenty from Tuesday, while an additional 138 British Columbians are now considered recovered from the virus and in a welcome note from the Doctor, no new deaths were made note of today, leaving the province at 250 passings since January.

“Today, we are announcing 158 new cases, including five epi-linked cases, for a total of 10,892 cases in British Columbia. 

There are 1,496 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, 3,608 people who are under active public health monitoring as a result of identified exposure to known cases and 9,112 people who tested positive have recovered. 

Currently, 84 individuals are hospitalized with COVID-19, 24 of whom are in intensive care. The remaining people with COVID-19 are recovering at home in self-isolation." 

Across the province, the various Health Authorities relayed the following totals today for COVID-19 to date for their region:

3,941 cases of COVID-19 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 5,697 in the Fraser Health region, 237 in the Island Health region, 585 in the Interior Health region, 343 in the Northern Health region an increase of two since yesterday.

89 cases COVID have been recorded for people who reside outside of Canada.

More advice on how protect yourself also made for some of today's message from Dr. Henry.

“One of the best things that we can do to protect ourselves and those around us is to pay close attention to how we are feeling, by doing our own personal health check each day. This is particularly important if we have recently spent time with people outside of our household bubble or 'safe six.' 

If you are at all feeling unwell, be the COVID-19 champion who makes the choice to stay home and stay away from others. If you have any symptoms, contact 811 or your health-care provider to arrange for testing. 

Choosing to do the right thing helps to protect all of us and keep our loved ones, our Elders and our communities safe.”
