|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
