Today, health officials announced the deadliest weekend in British Columbia coronavirus (COVID-19) history, with 46 dead in three days.
Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry became emotional on Monday as she expressed condolences to the families and thanking the caregivers for their dedication.

Henry said 80% of the deaths were in long-term care homes and 441 people have now died from COVID-19 in the province. She added that the increase in the number of deaths reflects the challenge of dealing with the virus in communities and the impact on older people when it enters nursing homes.

“It has been a difficult pandemic for all of us, with so many usual ways of communicating with those we care about – our families, friends and communities – have been interrupted or significantly altered in the wake of COVID-19,” she explained.

“For the many occasions and activities of daily living that we would normally do together, we have to stay apart. And while it can be difficult, most people in British Columbia do the right thing. ”

There have been outbreaks in 57 long-term and assisted living facilities as well as five acute care units in British Columbia.
