COVID-19: B.C. health officials announce record 911 new cases amid 'our COVID storm'

Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.'s provincial health officer, and Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, today (Nov. 27) issued the following joint statement regarding updates on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) response in British Columbia.

The second new case is a man in his 50s, is a resident of the province, and is a close contact of a previous known travel case. The county Health Department reported 24 new cases on Thursday evening, with 161 new cases within the past seven days, in addition to 15 people hospitalized, 368 active cases and 27 deaths.

Of those total reported cases, about 2,513 are presumed to be active infections.

That brings the total number of confirmed local cases to 498 since the start of the pandemic in March. A backlog of more than 4,000 negative tests from more than 2,200 individuals was officially added onto the state's dashboard Sunday. In many cases, that's the entire classroom.

Ontario health officials are reporting that 46 more people in Ottawa have tested positive for COVID-19, down slightly from the 55 reported on Friday.

Twenty-nine new COVID-19 deaths have also been reported across Ontario. There were no new cases on Prince Edward Island.

The county reported a consecutive, at least five-day increase in its seven-day average of outpatient visits for COVID-like illness, which are then followed by a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 diagnosis, within the past three weeks.

"The North is not exempt from the increase in COVID-19 activity and hospitalization rates, and we want to reinforce Dr. Henry's call to act appropriately". It rose to an average of about 152 new cases on November 19.

On Wednesday (Nov. 25), the College Heights Tim Hortons location also confirmed an employee has tested positive, which promoted the closure of its restaurant until December 1 for extra cleaning.

The first new case is related to travel, a man between 20 and 39 who came to the province from England after being granted a travel exemption.
