British Columbia announced three additional deaths and 29 new patients, which marks a low in daily reported cases this week.
“I don’t think I’m ready to say anything is a win yet. But every day we have been bending that curve is a good thing,” said provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry.
“The risk remains very high for us in B.C. We are in the thick of it and we must hold our line.”
The most recent update brings B.C.’s death toll to 38, and its total cases to 1,203.
Among the new cases is a first at a long-term care facility in the Fraser Health Region. There are now 23 long-term care homes in the province that have experienced a COVID-19 outbreak.
Of the 1,203 cases, 149 people are in hospital, including 68 in intensive care. There are also now 704 resolved cases in the province. As of April, health authorities have completed 48,508 tests.
