Record high 165 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in B.C.

NM records 2 new virus deaths, 119 more cases

There are 24 people hospitalized with COVID-19 and 13 people hospitalized awaiting test results, according to Public Health. Henry said that while the rise in new cases that began earlier this summer was driven by people in their 20s and 30s, that's now spilling into older, more vulnerable age groups. And we all should consider any additional deaths from this disease tragic.

"Taking the step to get tested is how you protect your friends, your family, and your community".

With B.C.'s active caseload reaching another new all-time high, Henry took aim at social gatherings, which health officials say have been responsible for much of the transmission of the virus in recent weeks. After cases had dropped to the double-digits Monday, the new tally Wednesday comes as a notable surge.
