366 new Covid-19 cases and four deaths in BC

There have been 366 new cases of COVID-19 reported over the past three days and four deaths in BC.

The provincial health officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, said there are now 1,987 active cases in the province, of which 60 are being treated in hospital including 21 in intensive care.

She said 121 cases were reported between noon Friday and noon Saturday, 117 cases between noon Saturday and noon Sunday and 128 cases between noon Sunday and noon Monday.

“We definitely are seeing a resurgence,” Henry said.

There have been 8,208 cases recorded in B.C. since the pandemic appeared here in late January and 227 people have died — mostly people aged around 85 with pre-existing health problems.

Two of the deaths over the past three days were in Vancouver Coastal Health, with one each in Fraser Health and Northern Health. Henry said this was the second person to die in Northern Health. The only long-term care facility death among the four was at Point Grey Hospital, which now has had four deaths.
