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.
“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.”
