9 new COVID-19 cases in Island Health after several low days

Optimism grows as COVID-19 case numbers continue to drop in B.C.

There is growing optimism from Canadians that the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is now behind us, with a positive outlook from both the public and our top health officials.

The highest density of COVID-19 cases, projecting total cases per 100,000 population, is in the 98675 ZIP code.

Just over 74 per cent of B.C. adults have now received at least one dose of vaccine, as have about 72 per cent of those 12 and older.

Of the new cases, 70 are in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 285 are in the Fraser Health region, nine are in the Island Health region, 101 are in the Interior Health region and 15 are in the Northern Health region.

There are now 2,051 active cases of COVID-19 in B.C., and of the 203 people in hospital, 57 are in intensive care.

The number of people battling COVID-19 in hospital increased slightly on Tuesday to 203, with 57 patients in intensive care.

In all, there are 2,102 active cases of the novel coronavirus across B.C., the lowest number since November 17.

Two additional deaths that occurred more than 30 days ago also were reported, raising the state's death toll to 4,286, the New Mexico Department of Health said.

The Taoisaech says the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines is continuing "very effectively and efficiently". The remaining people with COVID-19 are recovering at home in self-isolation. Getting back into our communities, getting back to work and getting back to our meaningful social connections that sustain us.
