  • New COVID-19 modelling numbers coming in B.C.

The latest epidemiological modelling for COVID-19 in British Columbia is being released by provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix today.

On Monday, the province reported seven more deaths and 1,853 new cases of COVID-19 diagnosed over a three-day period from Friday to Monday.

From Friday to Saturday, there were 769 cases, but the number dropped to 503 on Sunday to Monday.

There were 5,918 active infections across the province, of which nearly 41 per cent were located in the Interior Health region.

Of the active cases, 176 people were in hospital and 91 were in intensive care.

The Health Ministry says people who hadn't received a single dose of COVID-19 vaccine accounted for more than 71 per cent of the province's cases and 79 per cent of hospitalizations between Aug. 13 and Friday.
