Health officials to reveal new cases recorded over the past 3 days
B.C. will get another update Monday on how many new test-positive cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in the province, and this time, the briefing is expected to cover a 72-hour span.
Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry took a well-earned day off Saturday – her first in months – and there was no case update over the weekend.
But she and Health Minister Adrian Dix will be back in the afternoon for a briefing on how many new cases of the novel coronavirus have been recorded in B.C.
In the last update, which was given through a written statement issued on Friday, just one new case of the virus had been recorded in a 24-hour period and one more person died.
As of Friday afternoon, there were 193 cases considered active and 21 patients were in hospital, with five of those in intensive care.
A total of 2,632 people have tested positive for COVID-19 since the outbreak began in B.C. and 2,272 people have recovered, the health ministry said.
