Monday COVID review shows continued decline in new Cases, increasing rate of vaccination

Dr. Bonnie Henry had a day away from the daily briefing routine this afternoon, so it was up to Dr. Réka Gustafson, B.C.’s deputy provincial health officer, and Adrian Dix, Minister of Health to track the provinces continued success in reducing new cases of COVID, noting of levels now dropping to the low 100's in recent days.

“Over the last three days, we had a total of 481 new cases of COVID-19, for a total of 145,530 cases in British Columbia. This includes 217 new cases from June 4 to 5, 131 new cases from June 5 to 6 and 133 new cases in the last 24 hours. 

“There are currently 2,102 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, and a further 141,663 people who tested positive have recovered. Of the active cases, 199 individuals are currently hospitalized, 63 of whom are in intensive care. 

The remaining people are recovering at home in self-isolation  

There have been 12 new COVID-19 related deaths, for a total of 1,722 deaths in British Columbia. Our condolences are with the family, friends and caregivers of the people who have died as a result of COVID-19."

Across the province, the Regional Health Authority's recorded the following levels for the weekend: 70 are in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 285 are in the Fraser Health region, nine are in the Island Health region and 101 are in the Interior Health region.

15 of the new cases from the weekend came from the Northern Health region, which now has recorded 7,719 cases of the virus since January 2020.
There is one case of a person in the province who resides outside of Canada reporting a case of COVID.

Towards the provincial vaccination program, the results of the weekend were as follows: 73.9% of all adults in B.C. and 71.5% of those 12 and older have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. 

In total, 3,635,795 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in B.C., 314,246 of which are second doses.

“We are doing very well here in B.C. Cases are declining and we are on track with our provincewide COVID-19 immunization targets. 

Our immediate goal is to get as many people as possible fully vaccinated with their COVID-19 vaccine as soon as we can. 

By keeping our positive momentum going, we can all start to shift our focus to the many things we have to gain through immunization. Getting back into our communities, getting back to work and getting back to our meaningful social connections that sustain us. 

Let’s look forward to the brighter days ahead and let’s continue to do our part to help all of us get there.”
