The number of confirmed cases in B.C. is now at 215,688 while the death toll climbs to 2,303.
Currently, there are 3,132 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, 337 people in hospital — 115 of whom are in intensive care.
A total of 210,070 people in B.C. have recovered from COVID-19 while 8,551,866 doses of vaccine have been administered province-wide.
According to provincial health officials, there are 436 active cases in the Island Health region. Island Health’s dashboard, however, pegs that number at 374 —68 in North Island, 213 in Central Island and 93 in South Island. It’s worth noting that there are often discrepancies between the figures due to “differences in reporting” timeframes between the two agencies.
There are currently 48 people in the region in hospital due to the virus, 13 of whom are in critical care.
Since the pandemic began, there have been 12,208 cases reported, 119 deaths, 643 total hospitalizations, 11,608 recoveries, 460,881 tests for COVID-19, and 1,420,410 doses of vaccine administered on Vancouver Island, according to the BCCDC’s dashboard.
