COVID-19 Update April 18, 2020:
📊 There are 29 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in BC. There are a total of 1,647 cases of COVID-19 in BC. There are 689 cases in the Fraser Health region.
💻 On Monday, April 20th at 7:15 MLAs Rachna Singh and John Martin will join the CEO and President of Fraser Health Dr. Victoria Lee and the Chief Medical Officer of Fraser Health Dr. Martin Lavoie.
🔴 Sadly, three more people have passed away due to COVID-19 in BC. This brings the total number of deaths to 81. My thoughts are with their families, caregivers, and communities in this incredibly difficult time.
✅ 987 people have fully recovered from COVID-19 in BC.
Our efforts at social distancing are making a difference. BC is flattening the curve. But as Dr. Henry said, the storm is still raging. We must continue our efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We cannot erase all the progress that we have made together.
Be safe. Be well.
