|The Northwest weekly COVID data results have once again|
brought welcome news with a drop to only 3 cases of COVID for
Prince Rupert reported for the week of April 11 to 17
The powerful impact of COVID vaccines is on display today from the latest release from the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control; with the data review for the week showing that just one month after the mass vaccination program in Prince Rupert, some dramatic results have been realized.
Today's data release from the British Columbia CDC shows a significant decrease of 42 case reports of COVID from just one week ago, with today's count listed at just 3 reported cases of COVID.
To put that into perspective, two weeks ago Prince Rupert had been listed with 72 cases, while one month Prince Rupert's high mark came with the March 17th report which noted 117 cases.
And while Prince Rupert residents can exhale a bit, there is still work to be done to continue to keep the positive results current and building, that as the virus continues to rise and fall in the region.
