Dr. Bonnie Henry announced British Columbia’s latest COVID-19 cases on Monday. They included one death, a man in his 40s who passed away in his home after community transmission, and 63 new cases.
Dr. Henry said he is the first person under 60 to die of the disease in the province.
Of 1,266 total cases in B.C., 783, or 62 per cent, have recovered.
“Our percentage of new cases has been slowing,” she added. “It’s a testament to the effort that everybody here in B.C. has been making.”
