12 a.m. – 91 new cases reported in B.C. with no deaths
There were 91 new cases of COVID-19 reported in B.C. between noon Tuesday and noon Wednesday and no deaths.
The provincial health officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, said there were now 1,376 active cases of the disease, with 62 people being treated in hospital including 18 in intensive care.
The number of active COVID-19 cases peaked at 1,987 on Sept. 21, but dropped the following day to 1,465.
According to the Ministry of Health, this was because Vancouver Coastal Health had not been passing on recovery data to the B.C. Centre for Disease Control over the past month as they were transitioning to a new data collection system.
Fraser Health has the most active cases, at 781, with Vancouver Coastal Health next with 517 cases. Island Health has only eight active cases.
Henry said there were 3,368 people in quarantine under public health monitoring after being potentially exposed to the disease. Of the 8,395 cases that have been reported in B.C., 6,769 have recovered and 227 have died.
