COVID-19: Three new cases and nine recoveries

Only 3 new COVID-19 cases in Northern Health

Covid-19 cases are falling where most people are vaccinated, and vice versa, The Washington Post found.

No deaths were registered in the last 24-hours.

Henry says the active caseload in now 1,454, a decrease of 42 from Tuesday.

That brings the pandemic total up to 7,652, while the death toll remained stagnant at 72, where it has been since May 28.

The latest numbers come as new data shows the percentage of COVID-19 tests coming back positive continues to drop as disease activity wanes as the number of vaccinated county residents increases.

Nearly 14 per cent of adults in B.C. are now fully vaccinated (613,453) as second dosing ramps up (with 115,521 second doses administered over the past three days).

To date, 76.3%% of all adults 18 and over in BC and 74.6% of those 12 and older have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

"And we have the ability to push that even higher", they said.

"Getting fully immunized is the best way for us to put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us", added the pair. "It is how we protect our family and friends, the people at our favourite store or local theatre, as well as the communities we want to visit this summer", Henry and Dix said.
