B.C. health officials announced one new case of COVID-19, but that they’ve also removed a case from yesterday due to a data correction, leaving its total count at 2,632.

The one new case is the fewest since the province reported no new daily cases in early March.

Among B.C.’s total cases are 2,272 who have recovered from the virus, up by seven since Thursday’s update. Of the 193 active cases that remain in the province, there are 21 who are in hospital (down by five) and five in intensive care (down by one).

One more person in the Fraser Health region has also passed away over the past 24 hours, increasing the death toll to 167.

“There have been no new health-care facility outbreaks and the outbreak at the Berkley Care Centre has been declared over. In total, five long-term care or assisted-living facilities continue to have active outbreaks,” read a press release.

B.C.’s provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry did not hold a press conference on Friday.
