NANAIMO – The total number of active or resolved COVID-19 cases on Vancouver Island has increased, but not thanks to a new positive test.

In a joint statement by the provincial health worker, Dr. Bonnie Henry and Minister of Health Adrian Dix, the 127th case of COVID-19 for the island health region is linked to a person involved in the outbreak from Kearl Lake, Alberta.

The individual completed self-isolation in Alberta and recovered from the new coronavirus before returning to the island.

“The difference between the new cases and the total number of cases with … the health region of the island reported today is a consolidation of the data to reflect the COVID-19 cases according to the place of residence of the people, even if they were not in the health authority during their illness, “the statement said. .
