VICTORIA (NEWS 1130) – British Columbia recorded the lowest number of new daily COVID-19 cases in more than 10 months, with first-dose vaccines given to more than 75% of those eligible.

Health officials reported 229 new cases of coronavirus in the past three days on Monday – 94 Saturday, 90 Sunday and just 45 in the past 24 hours. Three other people died during this period, according to Dr. Bonnie Henry, provincial health officer, and Minister of Health Adrian Dix.

The number of hospitalizations continues to decline, with 108 people currently hospitalized. The number of people in intensive care is 48, the same as on Friday.

Today, we report that 77.3% of all adults in British Columbia and 75.8% of those 12 and older have now received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. A total of 4,436,432 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in British Columbia, of which 935,401 are second doses, ”the statement said.

There is a new outbreak at a healthcare facility at Eagle Ridge Hospital in Port Moody.

Henry and Dix are also urging anyone over 12 to get vaccinated in early summer, and travel is now permitted.

“We encourage everyone to start your summer off right by making sure you get your first dose, if you haven’t already,” the release said.

“As we move forward with BC’s restart plan, let us remember that the virus is still circulating in communities here in BC and neighboring provinces and territories. If you are planning a trip, make sure you get vaccinated before you go – this is your ticket to safe travel this summer.
