Coronavirus: B.C. reports 549 new COVID-19 cases over four days as death toll reaches 250 | FULL

British Columbia’s provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry on Tuesday reported 549 new cases of COVID-19 over four days, and five new deaths.

There were 170 cases from Friday to Saturday, 159 cases from Saturday to Sunday, 119 from Sunday to Monday, and 101 from Monday to Tuesday. Five of the cases were epi-linked.

The province has recorded 100 or more new COVID-19 cases each day for 12 straight days.

Henry said Tuesday’s numbers “are higher than what we would like to see,” and attributed the rise to a backlog in cases that added about “an extra day’s worth of tests” to the totals.

The backlog, which occurred largely in the Fraser Health region, has now been cleared, Henry said.

The five deaths brought the provincial death toll to 250, while the number of active cases in B.C. rose to 1,476.

    And we have 37 million residents in Canada. You are more likely to die in a car accident.

    Isn't it strange nobody asks about the many pending lawsuits in works concerning government and their response to this so called pandemic?

    20 people died of fentanyl overdosing.
    5 deaths each day during the same period.

    COVID19 grand total deaths in BC is only 250 people since February. It's why 99.99% of us don't know anyone who died.

    People do die, I understand drug overdose is also high, I think higher.
    I think this is low, can be shelved. People do get sick, can't stop this.
    Most people, now over 50!!, sad but true, have developed other conditions, so are
    weakened for more.
    When will we put HEALTH first, not health care? Health care brings money, HEALTH lowers this.

    Positive how can you tell from a pcr testing? its inventor won a Nobel prize for it and said do not use this to test. Cases should be those who present with symptoms and require treatment. Not those who test for having the antibody, that is part of heard immunity. Gotta have been exposed to get the antibody. Guess this does not fit with the narrative that Gates the WHO and Governments want to paint

    I just want everyone to be careful out there today .
    There's alot of people infected with a mental condition called intelligence.
    Symptoms include thinking for oneself, bravery, and an intolerance for being controlled by fear .
    These infected people are highly dangerous .
    If you see them , run in the opposite direction and then turn on the news to cleanse yourself .
    If we keep working together , we can rid the world of intelligence.

    Thumbs down is SHOCKING. Quit the gobbledygook statistics, use your credentials and focus on the real issue of bio science proof for isolating/testing of this highly contagious COVID-19 virus to get majority thumbs UP so as to establish some level of academic accomplishment from the 'thinking' BC'ers. Otherwise resign!
