The British Columbia government is expected to release its modeling information on COVID-19 today.
Health Minister Adrian Dix said the report will be an indicator of how many people may become infected with the virus. Additionally, Dix said they’ll also reveal how the province has been preparing for what could be the worst-case scenario in comparison to outbreaks in China and Italy.
Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry also said the next few days will give us a good indication of how much social distancing has helped to slow the spread of the virus.
The two are set to make their epidemiological modeling announcement at 10:30 am PT. You can catch it live on CHEK’s Facebook page and YouTube Channel.
There have 725 people who have tested positive for the virus in B.C. to go along with 14 deaths.
This story will be updated following the announcement at 10:30 am
