For Second week in a row Prince Rupert remains atop the BC CDC local health authority COVID count in the Northwest


The latest data on COVID cases  by local area from the BC CDC

This week's relay of local community COVID information from the BC CDC continues to mark a significant shift in the evolution of the coronavirus in the region. 

With Prince Rupert retaining its position once again this week, of the community with the most reported cases of COVID in a one week period,  a placement that puts it quite a distance ahead of many of the communities of the Northwest when it comes to positive case report of Coronavirus

Prince Rupert's totals for the week of February 14 to 20 are listed at 51 reported positive cases of the coronavirus, the majority of them coming from the ongoing outbreak at Acropolis Manor and the month long  listings of reported exposures at School District 52. The number marks a decline of six cases from last week for the North Coast City.

The distance continuing to expand between the North Coast and Terrace, which saw another significant decline in positive case reports at 36 for the latest reporting period which ended on Saturday. 

It marks the  second week in a row that Prince Rupert has outpaced the Skeena Valley City for the location with the most cases per week to report. Also of note this week is significant jump in the figures from Haida Gwaii which now has a COVID-19 count of 26

The BC Centre for Disease Conrol shares data on a weekly basis culled from Local Health Authority reports, the other areas of the Northwest outside of Prince Rupert and Terrace continued to show varied levels from region to region.

Across the remainder of the Northwest, the cases reported from  February 7 to 13 were as follows.

Terrace -- 36
Haida Gwaii -- 26
Upper Skeena  -- 7
Nechako -- 4 
Nisga'a Region 
-- 5
Bella Coola Valley -- 1
Smithers --1
Snow Country/Stikine/Telegraph Creek -- 1
Burns Lake -- 1

The Central Coast once again had no cases of COVID reported in the period, and as it was last week the Kitimat area had no cases to report.
