SA continues to battle the Covid-19 pandemic

Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.'s provincial health officer, and Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, today (Feb. 16) issued the following joint statement regarding updates on the COVID-19 response in British Columbia.

These numbers are beyond the "widespread" risk level factors for each county, which is more than seven daily new cases per 100,000 residents, and a positivity rate of more than 8 percent.

In a separate news release on Tuesday, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment wrote that there could be a delay in vaccination allotments in Colorado due to inclement weather delaying shipments. 231 people are hospitalized, 74 of whom are in ICU.

7,136 people are now under active public health monitoring.

There have been 5,828 deaths among cases, and of those, there have been 5,655 deaths because of COVID-19.

Across B.C., 1,533 cases of COVID-19 were reported over the same period, while 26 people died of the disease.

1 102 new cases have been recorded since the last report on Sunday.


The county's Covid-19 dashboard shows there have been 5,569 confirmed cases and now 99 active cases.

In the four days since Friday afternoon, before the Family Day long weekend, B.C. health officials detected 1,533 COVID-19 cases - a total that shows that the pace of new infections remains high.

A group of surveillance clinics in Minnesota reported that 0.5% of patients sought care for flu-like illness in the week ending February 6.

The most recent data from the Ministry of Health indicates that the Cayo and Belize City District are where the majority of Covid-19 cases have been detected.

The state Department of Health announced Friday that vaccine supply will be extremely limited this week because it is focusing on providing second doses.

There are active COVID-19 outbreaks at 15 seniors' care homes, assisted-living facilities and retirement residences across the province.

As of today, 828,078 Hoosiers have received a first dose of vaccine, and 347,508 are fully vaccinated.
