Northern Health Authority has another new COVID-19 case, provincial total now 1,066

Dr. Bonnie Henry says 606 cases have fully recovered

There are now 1,066 cases COVID-19 in B.C., with 53 new cases announced during a daily briefing today (April 1) from Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Minister of Health Adrian Dix. 

This includes one new case for Northern Health for a new total of 16.

Dr. Henry added there was another death recorded in the Fraser Valley region for a new total of 26.

“This is a very challenging time for us — it’s hard to know how things will turn out right now, but we seem to be holding our own,” said Henry.

“We will get through this no matter what happens, but we do have a few more weeks to go. Our goal is to have these restrictions that we put in place and the orders that we put in place for as short a time as possible.”

Provincially, there are now 72 COVID-19 cases on Vancouver Island, 497 in the Vancouver Coast Health Authority, 367 in Fraser Health, 114 in Interior Health and 16 in Northern Health.

There are 142 people in hospital, including 67 in intensive-care units or high acuity care units.

Of those who have tested positive, 606 have fully recovered and are no longer in isolation.

There are now 21 outbreaks at care homes or assisted-living homes.
