B.C. records almost 1,900 new COVID-19 cases in two days

B.C. sets record for new COVID-19 cases on April 2, and again April 3

Indigenous people over the age of 18, and people who have received letters saying they are clinically extremely vulnerable, can also book online by going to the B.C. government's Get Vaccinated website here. "We've seen that in other jurisdictions and we expect to see it here", he said.

Before Saturday, Vancouver Island's record for new cases of COVID-19 in a single day was 55, set on March 26. Six patients at Lawrence's hospital had COVID-19 on Monday, four more than Thursday.

There have been 16,637 county residents who have recovered from the coronavirus with the 86 recoveries recorded Monday.

We are working hard to deliver an easy-to-use provincial booking system for all British Columbians and know everyone is eager to book their appointment, beginning next week.

Health Minister Adrian Dix said Monday the new online system has been tested and call centre operators booked hundreds of thousands of appointments through it over the past couple weeks.

Today, we are reporting two periods: April 1 to 2, we had 1,018 cases, and in the last 24-hours, we had a further 1,072 cases, for a total of 2,090 new cases over two days and a total of 102,970 cases overall in British Columbia.

Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine safe, effective on adolescents in trial, companies say
Whether COVID-19 vaccines work and are safe to use on children is one of the big questions drugmakers are trying to answer. Earlier this week, Pfizer/BioNTech had hopeful results from a vaccine trial in children between 12 and 15 years old.

To date, almost 770,000 eligible British Columbians - or one in six - have received their first dose of vaccine, and more than 87,000 have received their second dose.

Of the confirmed variant cases to date, 2,771 are of the variant first identified in the United Kingdom, 737 of the variant first identified in Brazil and 51 of the variant first identified in South Africa.

Saturday's numbers were also missing information on coronavirus variants of concern and hospitalizations, absences the health officials attributed to the long weekend.

"Let's be clear, there's a lot of people in hospital, a lot of people in critical care", Dix said. "We can manage but it puts a lot of pressure on staff".

It has been a week since B.C. announced temporary restrictions on indoor dining and indoor group fitness intended as a "circuit breaker" to stop the spread. "When we say it's increasing among young people, still, the average age of someone hospitalized in Fraser Health is about 65".

A telephone option is also available and people can register in person at their nearest Service BC location.
