UK records 9,284 new COVID-19 cases, amid rising trend

Missouri counties account for 13 of the top 25 counties in the USA with the highest rate of new cases, The Times reported.

Health officials also announced 74 new cases of COVID-19, pushing Manitoba's total to 55,405.

The new cases were among 229 cases found across B.C. since the last update from the province on Friday.

Out of the cases announced Sunday, 42 were identified in Winnipeg, 24 in the Southern Health region, 14 in Interlake-Eastern, eight in the Northern Health region and five in Prairie Mountain.

Statewide, more than 94% of the individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 have made full recoveries, according to DOH figures, a number that could be even higher due to tracking gaps. The death toll climbed to 3,88,135 with 1,422 fresh fatalities, the lowest in 65 days, the Health Ministry said.

None of the weekend deaths were on Vancouver Island, where 41 people have died since the pandemic began.

This is the lowest number since April 14, where 86 cases were reported.

Today, we are reporting that 77.3% of all adults in B.C. and 75.8% of those 12 and older have now received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Two hundred and fifty Manitobans are now hospitalized with COVID-19 in Manitoba and neighbouring provinces, including 57 ICU patients in Manitoba and 17 receiving intensive care in Ontario and Alberta. Punjab, Haryana, Karnataka, Odisha, Kelara, and Tamil Nadu have eased Covid-19 restrictions and allowed more services/activities as Covid-19 cases continue to fall.

The health officials are also warning travellers in particular to get vaccinated before leaving home.

"While we are progressing through BC's Restart plan, let's remember that the virus is still circulating in communities, here in B.C. and in neighbouring provinces and territories".

"If you are planning a trip, ensure you are vaccinated before you go - it is your ticket to safe travel this summer".

Canada is likely to hit major vaccine milestones in the next month with as much as 80 per cent of the country fully covered, but the country will still have to be ready for flare-ups and outbreaks, according to Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada's chief public health officer.
