Another day of high case counts, reports of passings and guidance on what to watch for to differentiate between COVID and four or colds, made for the theme of today's COVID report from Doctor Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix.“Today, we are reporting 673 new cases of COVID-19, including six epi-linked cases, for a total of 44,776 cases in British Columbia.
The two top public health officials also provided a short list of what to watch for should you be feeling ill and wonder if it is COVID.“Here in B.C., the majority of new cases continue to be directly connected to known, confirmed cases of COVID-19. As a result, if you are a close contact of someone with the virus or of someone who is part of a cluster or outbreak and you develop any symptoms, you should arrange to get tested immediately.
